I'm sure, I already briefly considered this issue, don't remember 
exactly the context.

Yes, that's a problem, it's available only in C99, and we can't assume 
that kind of libc, in general. I don't know, maybe we can use long long 
(or maybe better, unsigned long long), and choose the right type via 
something like:

typedef __gnu_cxx::__conditional_type<(sizeof(const void*) <= 
sizeof(unsigned long)), unsigned long, unsigned long long>::__type 

Is it sufficient to cover all the targets where libstdc++ actually 
works? One, more general issue in the context of C++03, is that if 
_GLIBCXX_USE_LONG_LONG is undefined neither unsigned long long (neither 
uintptr_t for that matter) can be output because operator<<(unsigned 
long long) is missing. Probably, however, that problem isn't real 
anymore, because long long is already in the working draft of C++0x and 
we can assume it to be available unconditionally.
