I've added versions of the first two fixes to the CVS. 

I don't want to touch null stripping issues so hopefully Brian
will check that out. <*shame*> I've always tuned out of those
discussions as long as it works for me.

I'm not ready to tackle the int32_t patch issue b/c I don't
myself know how widely spread int32_t is.  Unless someone can
verify that int32_t is everywhere, I believe a better fix would
also mean having autoconf create some AC_CHECK_SIZEOF() tests.
That doesn't sound too difficult, so I'll try to work on it
this week.
