Bug#110687: __WORDSIZE not defined
The __WORDSIZE macro is supposed to be defined in <limits.h> (actually
bits/wordsize.h, which limits.h includes). However, it only defines it
if gcc is not defined. IMHO, this is libc's job, not the compiler's.
However, *someone* needs to define it, since currently it isn't being
defined at all.
This is holding up porting some packages to IA-64 (that's where i
first noticed the problem). Below is a small program which
demonstrates the problem. The problem exists on at least testing-i386
printf("wordsize is %d\n", __WORDSIZE);
