<stdio_ext.h> is one thing; it's not standardized.  But <sys/types.h>
is another.  The compiler is seriously broken if <sys/types.h> does
not define size_t.

As I recall, the last mainstream POSIX-like operating system that
didn't have size_t in <sys/types.h> was 4.3BSD-Reno (circa 1990), a
system so old that we haven't supported it for ages.  POSIX has
required <sys/types.h> to define size_t for quite some time.

Jim indicated that he'd rather not worry about implementations that
are this far out of the mainstream.  Can you please fix this with the
LSB compiler, or get it fixed?
