I also have read that stdint.h is part of gnu libc -- is this
right or wrong?  If so, why was it adopted as part of FBSD5 but

I have no idea what you mean by "stdint.h being part of gnu's
Sorry -- very sloppy writing.  To be precise:  /usr/include/stdint.h
on my gentoo linux box is part of the 'glibc' package.
In keeping with Matt's reply, in the first few lines of stdint.h (from
my linux box) this comment appears:
 *      ISO C99: 7.18 Integer types <stdint.h>
but I don't pretend to be smart enough (yet) to grasp the implications
of all this.
For the present, I'm just trying to get GRUB to compile, and I can see
that this header is involved somehow.
