I'd be happy to understand how on a Mac you can determine that
including sys/types.h is unnecessary, if it's so much platform
dependent :)

But the point is, there are very few headers which are available
*everywhere*, and *no single GNU program* ever checks for them:
stdio.h, sys/types, and sys/stat.h.  Considering the effort it would
take the free software to adjust itself to your environment, if I were
you I'd create sys/types, and have it include the very very very much
more system dependent size_t.h (or I don't remember how it's named).
