That's strange. Certainly sizeof(*int) != sizeof(int) on 64-bit systems,
but I wouldn't have expected it on PPC32...

It's a fairly common hard-to-find bug in AMD64 stuff that shows up in
Debian... I think it's the number one warning seen on the AMD64
build-daemons too.

The static linking one's fine, as long as you're not building against a
later gcc than you're deploying to. (Which is true of dynamic linking
too). Due to NSSwitch, even static linking only gets a stub linked in
for the NSS functions, and loades glibc6 for those functions at runtime.
