I made this change based on a bug report (cf
http://mailman.videolan.org/pipermail/vlc-devel/2008-January/038452.html ) and private exchanges with the reporter.
Before committing, I compiled it on linux and just grepped for u_int32_t
in the include dir, which gave in vlc_common.h :
    typedef u_int32_t           uint32_t;
so I assumed it would be equivalent anyway. (as for the non-standard
part, grepping for u_int32_t in /usr/include on a Debian system returns
quite a few matches. Not that it makes it a standard, but it makes it
not that exotic). 
Sorry about the breakage anyway. I guess that the reported bug will have
to be fixed another way.
