A user complained on the IRC the other day about <cstddef> being missing
on his FreeBSD system when using libc++.

It turned out that he had forgotten to set WITH_LIBCPLUSPLUS=yes for his
system, as advised in [1].

<cstddef> has been in the standard since at least C++03, so if your
toolchain is missing it, there's something properly wrong with it.

I see now that the clang in the test link is on darwin, but it still
smells of mis-deployment.
