An easy way around this, and to be lazy.

typedef unsigned long vect;

You define a type vect to act as all your bitvectors.  Yes it may prove
wasteful if you plan to have a lot of short bitvectors, but in the long
run, having a uniform bitvector type means making just one class of
functions to handle them.
