ip_mroute.h ( 2003/06/30 02:21:21) uses u_int32_t in the following line:

typedef u_int32_t vifbitmap_t;

but does not include a header defining it.  Similarly u_int16_t in the next line.
I believe there are similar problems in icmp6.h, igmp.h, ip.h, ip6.h, ip_icmp.h, tcp.h, and udp.h, though I haven't verified that they're not fixed in a later version than the one I have.
This seems unlikely to present a serious problem to anyone else, since the relevant header is presumably already being included whenever these files are used.

I'm reassigning this to lib because this issue as such isn't a standards 
issue; neither of the aforementioned headers are standardized interfaces, 
where "standardized" means "defined in an industry standard specification 
we attempt to conform to". 

Whether (all of) the installed headers visible to userland should be 
able to be included without any pre-requisites is also a policy decision 
to be made and thus also out of the domain of standards.
