libnbcompat's autoconf doesn't test for strcoll() at all, it is
always assumed to be the 2-argument version.

a test should be added to check that what is available is the
2-argument version, and if not, build it into libnbcompat. NetBSD's
strcoll() is simply a wrapper around strcmp(), fwiw. that is probably
OK if a suitable strcoll() isn't available.
