Relax fatal circumstances of unescaped '{'

After the 5.26.0 code freeze, it came out that an application that many
others depend on, GNU Autoconf, has an unescaped '{' in it.  Commit
7335cb814c19345052a23bc4462c701ce734e6c5 created a kludge that was
minimal, and designed to get just that one application to work.

I originally proposed a less kludgy patch that was applicable across a
larger set of applications.  The proposed patch didn't fatalize uses
of unesacped '{' where we don't anticipate using it for something other
than its literal self.  That approach worked for Autoconf, but also far
more instances, but was more complicated, and was rejected as being too
risky during code freeze.

Now this commit implements my original suggestion.  I am putting it in
now, to let it soak in blead, in case something else surfaces besides
Autoconf, that we need to work around.  By having experience with the
patch live, we can be more confident about using it, if necessary, in a
dot release.

Disable readdir_r and readdir64_r on glibc >= 2.24

       The  readdir_r()  function was invented as a reentrant version of read-
       dir(3).  It reads the next directory entry from  the  directory  stream
       dirp,  and  returns  it  in  the  caller-allocated buffer pointed to by
       entry.  For details of the dirent structure, see readdir(3).

       A pointer to the returned buffer is placed in *result; if  the  end  of
       the  directory stream was encountered, then NULL is instead returned in

       It is recommended that applications use  readdir(3)  instead  of  read-
       dir_r().   Furthermore,  since  version  2.24,  glibc  deprecates read-
       dir_r().  The reasons are as follows:

       *  On systems where NAME_MAX is undefined, calling readdir_r()  may  be
          unsafe  because  the  interface does not allow the caller to specify
          the length of the buffer used for the returned directory entry.

       *  On some systems, readdir_r() can't read directory entries with  very
          long  names.   When the glibc implementation encounters such a name,
          readdir_r() fails with the error ENAMETOOLONG after the final direc-
          tory  entry  has  been read.  On some other systems, readdir_r() may
          return a success status, but the returned d_name field  may  not  be
          null terminated or may be truncated.

       *  In  the  current POSIX.1 specification (POSIX.1-2008), readdir(3) is
          not required to be thread-safe.  However, in modern  implementations
          (including the glibc implementation), concurrent calls to readdir(3)
          that specify different directory streams  are  thread-safe.   There-
          fore,  the  use  of  readdir_r()  is generally unnecessary in multi-
          threaded programs.  In cases where multiple threads must  read  from
          the  same  directory stream, using readdir(3) with external synchro-
          nization is still preferable to the use of readdir_r(), for the rea-
          sons given in the points above.

       *  It  is  expected  that  a  future version of POSIX.1 will make read-
          dir_r() obsolete, and require that readdir(3)  be  thread-safe  when
          concurrently employed on different directory streams.
