Rename conflicting max_align_t definition

In bug 208158, I asked for an exp-run with updated libc++.  It turns out that security/gnutls attempts to redefine max_align_t, which is also present in libc++'s copy of stddef.h, and this conflicts.

Since gnutls doesn't really use the type at all, I thought it was easiest to simply rename the type to gnu_max_align_t.  This avoids any compilation errors of C++ sources in gnutls.

Alternatively, the whole block defining max_align_t could be deleted, but that is a more invasive change, and I don't know how the configure script will handle that...

Just append ac_cv_type_max_align_t=yes to CONFIGURE_ARGS in the port Makefile.

If that prevents gnutls from rolling its own copy, then it is even better, yes.
