I don't think this will always work correctly.  If MK_LIBCPLUSPLUS is
defined in, it only means libc++ is being *built*, not that
it is being used.

It is probably easier and more fool-proof to check if _LIBCPP_VERSION is
defined (which is the case when you use libc++) in bconfig.h, like so:

Index: contrib/atf/bconfig.h
--- contrib/atf/bconfig.h       (revision 261974)
+++ contrib/atf/bconfig.h       (working copy)
@@ -56,7 +56,9 @@
 #define HAVE_UNSETENV 1

 /* Define to 1 if vsnprintf is in std */

 /* Define to the sub-directory in which libtool stores uninstalled libraries.

Finally, please note that libstdc++'s cstdio header *does* have a
declaration for vsnprintf(), but it is only active when _GLIBCXX_USE_C99
is defined.  Unfortunately, the libstdc++ configure script does not
define that variable when you run it, since according to the script,
we lack a few C99 maths functions.
