VC6 provide "size_t" declarations in these files:

        File Include\CRTDBG.H:
        38      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\DIRECT.H:
        75      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\MALLOC.H:
        69      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\MBSTRING.H:
        68      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\MEMORY.H:
        62      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\NATIVE.H:
        45      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\NEW.H:
        64      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\RPCNDR.H:
        194     typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\SEARCH.H:
        62      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\STDDEF.H:
        93      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\STDEXCPT.H:
        42      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\STDIO.H:
        70      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\STDLIB.H:
        71      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\STRING.H:
        61      typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\TIME.H:
        89      typedef unsigned int size_t;
        172     typedef unsigned int size_t;

        File Include\WCHAR.H:
        79      typedef unsigned int size_t;

Yes, "size_t" declared.

>    <stdio.h>     /* historical location */

Yes, "size_t" declared.

>    <stddef.h>    /* C89 defined location */

Yes, "size_t" declared.

>    <sys/types.h> /* GNULIB seems to think it should be here */

No, "size_t" NOT declared.

I prefer avoiding "#define" if "#include" with correct "typedef" is
available and alternative solutions will also break the build.

Breaking the Windows build is no great concern to me.  We do it all the
time.  My contribution to CVS project is fixing it when we do.  I track
email to "address@hidden" and run test compiles accordingly.  I'm
usually 24 to 48 hours behind in fixing Windows build which is better
than before I was put on "address@hidden" list.
