Which version of Autoconf are you working from?  As near as I can tell,
Autoconf hasn't used this method to check sizes in quite some time.  It
uses an interesting hack to test sizes when cross-compiling where it asks
boolean questions about the size of variables by converting the questions
to code that will be semantically invalid (and hence rejected by the
compiler) if the answer to the question is false.
