Description Aurelien Jarno 2007-02-07 14:18:51 UTC
stdlib/fmtmsg.c is using a uint32_t type, but does not include stdint.h. This 
make the glibc to fail to build on Hurd. On other architectures, I guess 
stdint.h is included by one of the architecture specific headers.

The patches below fixes the problem:

I've said multiple times that the correct thing to do is to mimic what the other
archs do and include the same headers.  Otherwise there will always be these
kind of problems.
