hhh, but are not the SPARC version of 64 bit and the AMD version of 64 bit rather different animals ? Specificly I was under the impression that on
a SPARC both int and long are 64 bits, but on AMD64 an int is still 32
bits even though a long is 64 bits. That might break some code under AMD
which would work on SPARC.

I was under the impression that in C, and C family languages: short <= int <= long, as far as sizes go? So the nature of the problem could be the GNUstep just isn't really architecture independant yet?
