Oh well.  I managed to miss a problem during testing.  We just got a
report on the Cygwin mailing list.

The 32 bit types (e.g. int32_t, uint least32_t) on 32 bit i686 Cygwin,
are defined as "int".  However, the tests in sys/_intsup.h lead to the
definition of __have_long32 to 1, which in turn results in using long
constants in stdint.h and inttypes.h for 32 bit macros.  And this in
turn results in GCC warnings:

  printf("int = %"PRId32", uint = %"PRIu32".\n", ival, uval);
  x.c:9:9: warning: format ‘%lu’ expects argument of type ‘long unsigned int’,
  but argument 3 has type ‘uint32_t’ [-Wformat=]
  x.c:9:9: warning: format ‘%ld’ expects argument of type ‘long int’, but
  argument 2 has type ‘int32_t’ [-Wformat=]

On second thought, the definition of __have_long32 in sys/_intsup.h
always prefers "long" over "int", no matter how GCC actually defines the
base types __uint32_t, etc.

So the question is, shouldn't we use the same new method we're using
to find the right definition for {u}intptr_t for the {u}int32_t types
as well?
