Trap SIGBUS when Configure checks for va_copy (#18148)

On several systems the attempt to determine if we "need va_copy() or
similar" results in a SIGBUS instead of a SIGSEGV because the fault
happens pointing at an io device address.

While reviewing accounting logs during the OpenBSD system build, bluhm@
noticed a core dump and deraadt@ tracked it down.

While researching it was discovered that this is a fairly common case in
other systems as well.

Backport improvements to setlocale() probe

This is from Perl 5 commit 2e3ef32f4acc106de6ae8170099f09a36d4ef490, but
with a couple of changes to appease the metaconfig linter by avoiding
strings of the form /\w+=\S+/ (which it interprets as attempts to set shell
variables).
