4.3, believe it or not :-]  This system is used for compatibility
testing of a legacy product.

There's no #include at all, and stdint.h is not present under
/usr/include/. But I am building with GCC 4.7 (as the original
vendor compiler has outlived its usefulness), and that provides a
modern stdint.h.

The original inttypes.h is fixincluded by GCC, but this did not add the
stdint.h #include.

As I remarked to Jeff, would it be kosher to #include both inttypes.h
and stdint.h if both are present? It seems that most of the time, the
latter would be a no-op.
