The safe answer is "everything". More likely is "nothing", so

More realistically, I'd try looking at string.h and find out
what happened to it. Without forensic information, it's difficult
to say how to proceed. What is the cause of death?

Have you tried doing a diff of the file in /usr/include and the
one which comes "fresh" out of the tarball?
