The correct contents of stdint.h depends on the compiler and
its options.  You can't just use a stdint.h written for a
different compiler/os/etc. combination.

At least with OpenSSL 1.0.2, OpenSSL can be compiled on systems
without stdint.h, maybe some of the logic in the new build
system mistakenly thinks Solaris/SunOS provides stdint.h even
when it doesn't.
