[developers] PET + 64-bit architecture = int bugs?

Excellent work on this release, Bernd! I was able to install without a 
hitch on my 32-bit Ubuntu machine after making a small tweak to 
configure.ac to find my itsdb libraries.

However, I get strange error messages when trying to compile on a 64-bit 
machine of the same configuration. I have attached a log to this 
message. I can get around these errors by replacing all of the pointer 
type-casts to int with type-casts to long. I am assuming the reason I 
have this problem on 64-bit and not 32-bit is due to differences in the 
size in pointers. Does anyone else experience this problem? I also 
encounter it when compiling PET 0.99.7 on 64-bit machines using the ECL 
fix mentioned the other day.
