const char foo[] = "libc";
extern __typeof (foo) bar __attribute__((alias ("foo")));
int s1 = sizeof foo;
int s2 = sizeof bar;

yields

z.c:4: error: invalid application of ‘sizeof’ to incomplete type ‘const char[]’

with 4.0 and HEAD.  Compiles successfully with 3.2.3 and 3.4.4.  Also compiles
successfully with 4.0 and HEAD with -Dconst=''.  That is, the failure goes away
if we remove const from the picture.
