We probably need to include <sys/types.h> for older versions of Solaris in
this test. Earlier versions are notorious for not following the POSIX
standards in this regard (it should be defined in <stdint.h> and that's
where we look for it). We include both in "common.h", so this shouldn't be
a problem.

We can probably fix this, but as Charles already wrote, we'll need your
help here since none of the development crew has access to a Solaris
system as far as we know.
