On Solaris 8 at least, #include <inttypes.h> provides the types from a 1996
draft of what became C99:
	int{8,16,32,64,max,ptr}_t, uint{8,16,32,64,max,ptr}_t,
	int_least{8,16,32,64}_t and uint_least{8,16,32,64}_t

I'm not sure how far back that goes in Solaris releases.   Generally, people
aren't expected to be able to compile programs with C99 features on Solaris
releases prior to Solaris 10.
