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>

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.
