Yes. I should have pointed out that gdb 5.3 builds just fine out of the
box on NetBSD/sparc64 (with a minor fix for long != int). This problem
only manifests in the NetBSD reachover way of building it (basically because
the GNU way to build gdb does not invoke our lint).

Right, or just hand-editing bfd.h for the arch in question to get the proper
define regardless of the compiler/lint used. The NetBSD reachover build does
not generate bfd.h on the fly.
