No, I don't have a better suggestion.  I suppose you will just need to
write "if (bfd_elf_sign_extend_vma () == 1)".  ie. don't write
"... == true" as that infers the function returns a boolean.  Someone
is sure to later decide that "if (looks_like_bool_func () == true)" is bad
C style and rewrite it as "if (looks_like_bool_func ())"
