Re: size_t in lber.h

I've cc'ed -devel on this to allow wider discussions.

I am.  We haven't decided how best to deal with this.  One has to be very
careful to what headers <lber.h> and <ldap.h> include.  Including headers,
even STDC headers, can cause portability problems.  (Yes, we support
non-STDC C translators).

Right now, I am considering conditionally including <stddef.h>, not <stdio.h>,
as follows:

#include <stddef.h>

Including <stdio.h> would bring in too much junk.

<ldap.h> should unconditionally include <lber.h>.

I will likely commit changes to this effect soon.
