Also just before, there is:
/* But as external interface, we define SCM, which may, according to the
   desired level of type checking, be defined in several ways.  */
  typedef union SCM { struct { scm_t_bits n; } n; } SCM;
# define SCM_UNPACK(x) ((x).n.n)
# define SCM_PACK(x) ((SCM) { { (scm_t_bits) (x) } })
/* This is the default, which provides an intermediate level of compile
   time type checking while still resulting in very efficient code.  */
  typedef struct scm_unused_struct { char scm_unused_field; } *SCM;

The fault on hppa appears to be at strictness 1.
