Introduce a configure time check for the presence of `error.h`.  In the
case that `error.h` is not available, we can fall back to `err.h`.
Although `err.h` is not a C standard header (it is a BSD extension),
many libc implementations provide.  If there are targets which do not
provide an implementation of `err.h`, it would be possible to further
extend the implementation to be more portable.

This resolves PR21008.

Hi,

Sorry, this change is missing a modification that I seemed to have
left out accidentally.  I missed the inclusion of `err.h` in the
`HAVE_ERR_H` when I was staging the changes locally.  I'll send out a
new version of this patch.
