Since you used 'make build', I'll assume that your headers are up to

The error in types.h may be specific to the port that you're using.  I
run NetBSD/i386, and I didn't see that problem.  My experience was
otherwise the same as yours.

The only other holdup I had was that I didn't have the
/usr/libdata/lint directory.  Once I created that, I was able to build
and install lint without any problems.

To summarize, here's what you have to do:

cd /usr/src/usr.bin/xlint/lint1
make && make install
cd ../lint2
make && make install
cd ../xlint
make && make install
cd ..
mkdir /usr/libdata/lint
make install
