I'm pleased to announce that lint(1) is now a part of NetBSD-current.

  Lint(1) attempts to detect features of the named C program files
  that are lekely to be bugs, to be non-protable, or to be wasteful.
  It also performs stricter type checking then does the C compiler.

I hope lint(1) will prove to be useful for software development under NetBSD.
The current version of lint(1) conforms to ANSI C and is able to detect
almost all problems found by traditional lint implementations under UNIX.
