I understand this, as this has always been for stock circle since 3.x first
went beta, and 2.0 before that, etc... ad nauseum, but; the more correct
method(tm) is to:

/* prevent multiple includes */
#ifndef __CIRCLE_STRUCTS_H__
#define __CIRCLE_STRUCTS_H__
/* structs.h file */

And including structs.h within utils.h when utils.h requires typecast from
structs.h, for the sake of ease of use for other programmers.

Anyways, back to the subject, digging around, I found;

Although room_vnum is typedef'ed from sh_int (which is further typedef'ed
from signed short int), how well does the Win32 compiler deal with implicit
3rd generation typedef's.  The only value that is explicitly cast as
room_vnum is load_room(player_special_data_saved) and number(room_data).

real_atrium in hcontrol_build_house() is sh_int (which is technically the
same as room_vnum), but some compilers are extremely fussy.  SGI's native
compiler has levels of complaints that far exceed gcc in -Wall mode.

Could someone send me the complaints output?
