That is what the standard types are.

That define int int32 did not happen on my system for reasons that I 
have not yet determined.  I discovered it when the compile failed.

They do not seem to be "new" types, but common older non-standard types.

int8, int16, int32, int64, etc... on my system are in the header file 

As near as I can determine from google:

For BEOS those definitions are in support/SupportDefs.h

For HP-UX those definitions are in model.h

Linux also seems to have ints.h.  At the present time, I do not have 
quick access to inspect the contents.
