Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
        It seems like the changes to teach lint about _Complex cause it
to not handle "sizeof(long double)" properly. From what I can tell, the
problem is in lint1/decl.c deftyp(), where a long double gets treated as
long int: t == NOTSPEC, s == NOTSPEC, l == LONG, c == DOUBLE, tp == NULL.
Since t == NOTSPEC, the switch (t) sets t = INT.

A symptom is that building libc (on amd64) fails with:

/usr/src/lib/libc/arch/x86_64/gen/infinityl.c(16): too many array initializers, 
expected 8 [173]

The array is dimensioned as char[sizeof(long double)], which is 16 on amd64,
but lint treats it as char[sizeof(long int)], i.e., 8.

        Try to build -current on amd64, or run lint on:

char a[sizeof(long double)] = {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15};
