I've ran into the same problem several times before. Metashell uses some
heuristics to find out where the system headers are, and it's not perfect.
The quick workaround is to point Metashell to the directory of the correct
stdint.h file which is used by the system compiler by using another "-I"
The clang binary passed to the --clang flag is only used to generate
headers to speed up the speed of the interactive evaluation. You generally
don't have to specify it explicitly. Metashell ships with a bundled clang
which will be used by default. I can see that Metashell failed to use your
binary to generate precompiled headers from the splash text you sent. (But
has nothing to do with the original error you get).
Also, if your time allows please open a new issue to the project's github
so we can investigate what went wrong with the system headers off the
mailing list. Please give information about what version you're using
and how did you compile Metashell (if you compiled from source).
