The original unix lint is long gone, gone with k&r c.

Gcc -Wall does a much better and more thorough job than unix lint ever did, and doesn't require a separate compilation pass.

There are other lint inspired tools around and some of those do things like malloc/free checking and inter-file flow checking. I don't know of any that are free software that work compile time, though.
