  Well, from the newlib POV, there's the "it does not exist" issue...  it's an
entirely gcc-supplied header AFAICS.

  My first guess would be that there's some confusion somewhere over the size
of the bools in question.  In plain C, bool is a macro and could perhaps be
getting redefined somewhere.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today
