How to recover from "integer constant out of range"

Since this was reported a couple of times, here is
an explaination and a fix:

If you built a libc from sources between 2008/08/20
and 2008/08/26 you got a broken strtouq(3) which
results in false errors reported by lint(1). Since
this breaks the libc build itself, manual help is
needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, eg:

cd /usr/src/lib/libc
make depend all install NOLINT=1

Or comment out the "LINTFLAGS+= -w" line in
for one build.

After the new libc is in place, everything should
work as usual.
