    I saw this on my 3100, running ~1.3E binaries and sources sup-ed a
week or so ago.  FWIW after doing a "make -k all install" (and waiting a
few days...  =), I was able to do a make in lib/libc and lint didn't
fail.  No clue what broke, but it seemed to have fixed itself on my
system...  =)  Didn't see the problem at all on my sparc or i386 boxen.
