Personally, I think customizing the base types of the lua build is way
overkill, but I won't be the one maintaining the contribs and packaging.
And that can still be done either way with or without this patch. But
as it is like this, the code of the lua bindings is wrong so it needs
either a portability fix like this one, or a compile-time assert.
