Depends on what you'd need this for.
- Best would be to design your app in such a way that does not depend on
precomputed sizes. Instead, let the compiler compute them at
compile-time or even at run-time.
- If your problem is fixed-size types and if you are using a modern
toolchain, base your design on C99-types (aka. stdint.h)
- If you really need pre-computed sizes, check how autoconf's
AC_CHECK_TYPE macro works or (if your work is using autoconf)
directly use it.
