Maybe some day Debian will run on an architecture where CHAR_BITS != 8, but I doubt it; too much software depends on having exactly-8-bit types. Until then, why bother? (Similarly there's little point in including sizeof(short) and sizeof(int); they don't vary between our current architectures and are very unlikely to do so in future.)
