The C header passed the check without the prereq addition. However,
for C++ headers since
__STRICT_ANSI__ is not defined, it tries to expand the
and looks for declarations for size_t, memcpy() etc. To satisfy that
requirement, string header
file had to included similar to what was done for pvcalls.
