This is off-topic. If you want types with exact bit-widths then you
can write autoconf macros.
What we are discussing is whether glib can accomodate five types of
integers instead of four: char, short, int, long, *and* llong.
In my opinion: nevermind about the exact bit-widths.
Victory to the Divine Mother!!
