As a work around, I believe you can configure with size(size_t)
precomputed for configure. Something like:

    ./configure \
        <regular options> \

I'm less sure about how to pass the result of a sizeof test. For
functions, you would use ac_func, like ac_func_malloc=yes. But I am
not sure about ac__sizeof. Maybe you can check the generated configure
script for the shell variable.
