The values are those that I got from preprocessing with clang in 64-bit mode, the case that failed. When you say it, they could be defined differently in the other compiles that worked, for example in 32-but mode. But 
  typedef unsigned long word;
  typedef char* ptr_t;
seems right for 64-bit mode.

Strictly speaking it is
  typedef unsigned long GC_word;
  typedef GC_word word;
