I still don't understand why this is a regression (the FreeBSD 5.4 I
have access to has stdint.h).

Except now, HAVE_MALLOC, HAVE_REALLOC, and the results of AC_CHECK_DECLS
(HAVE_DECL_*) are special cases.  They seem to be documented correctly
as such in the manual, but I think a mention of these in the NEWS item
would be helpful, given that you intend to keep them that way.

(And no, I don't know the reason for each of these special cases; at
least the AC_CHECK_DECLS one looks like it's very much intended so.)
