[bug-gnu-libiconv] Cannot assume that "gets" is declared

The file “stdio.in.h” of libiconv contains these lines:

/* It is very rare that the developer ever has full control of stdin,
   so any use of gets warrants an unconditional warning.  Assume it is
   always declared, since it is required by C89.  */
_GL_WARN_ON_USE (gets, "gets is a security hole - use fgets instead");

This is wrong. “gets” is not part of C11 any more, and hence is not declared on 
some systems when e.g. the gcc flag “-std=c11” is used. This breaks my build; I 
have to manually remove these lines.
