typedef unsigned int bar;

typedef struct {
  bar a_bar;
} exported_foo_type;

Then this patch to bar.h:
@@ -0,1 +0,1 @@
-typedef unsigned int bar;
+typedef size_t bar;

is enough to cause an ABI break in libfoo, without needing 'porting'
work (though it may well cause print formatting failures on 64
environments and other side effects).
