	not check for things that C99 does not require, e.g., int8_t.  If
	a test isn't needed unless <stdint.h> isn't working, and is
	unlikely to be needed for any other reason, then don't do it
	unless <stdint.h> isn't working.  Do not check for ptrdiff_t or
	size_t, since we assume C89 freestanding at least.  Do not check
	for sig_atomic_t, wchar_t, or wint_t, since the code now does
	the right thing even if the types are not defined.  Instead use:
	(gl_HEADER_STDINT_H, gl_HEADER_INTTYPES_H): Remove.  Don't bother
	testing whether <sys/types.h> clashes, as Autoconf does this for
	us now.  All uses removed.
