string algorithms is currently failing all tests on all platforms on

AFAICT, the problem is that the string algo tests call the range
library begin/end functions with raw character pointers, I guess
looking for this to turn into a range by use of strlen or similar.

The range library flags a compile failure trying to form
C::const_iterator where C -> char *.

I also see the range library has appropriate overloads for fixed-length
arrays, and does not handle arrays of unknown size.

I don't know if these fails are due to changes in the range library or
string algorithms, so I'm not sure what to suggest as a patch yet.

Any comments from the library authors appreciated (even if it is simply
pointing to a previous discussion I have missed)
