I found 'AC_CHECK_HEADERS(sys/types.h)' in the files for
a2ps, kaffe, and rpm.  So it's plausible that some people have found
such systems.  (It wasn't me!)

I don't need it myself.  I'm just responding to the AmigaOS patch, and
am trying to help get autoconf into an reasonably consistent state

can certainly see your point of view.
