No, grokdeclarator puts error_mark_node into TREE_TYPE of decls in C, too.

Yes, so long as it can't get there normally.  How about using
void_zero_node instead?

Yep; that's what it means other places, too.  I'd rather just fix the
places that don't currently check for TREE_TYPE == error_mark_node.  Mark,
do you have any input?
