Bool is easy.  It's actually a data type in C++, so commenting out the
typedef is actually the correct answer (it could conceivably alter the
size of your structs, but then  so could a different size long).

For everything else, just do global search and replaces.  You'll get
errors on new, virtual, class, and one other thing I forget.
Respectively, I would replace them with newstr (or newint or newlong...),
vnum, and mudclass.

Oh yeah, and all those "struct"s in argument lists and local variable
declarations are all unnecessary now.  You only need the keyword struct
when you actually define the prototypes.
