The reason that you are getting errors is that lclint uses TRUE and
FALSE as the default names of the boolean constants, not true and false.
You can change this by using (you probably will want to add these to
your .lclintrc file):

	-booltrue true -boolfalse false

Looks like I have misinterpreted the standard here.  You're correct ---
it should be an unsigned long int.  This is fixed in the source package
now, and will be fixed in the binary packages soon.
