On your system and architecture, do the compile and run the following.

#include <stdio.h>
void main () {
        printf ("int: %d  long: %d\n", sizeof (int), sizeof (long));

If they're the same, you can probably get away with changing an int to
long.  If not, you might to bundle two int's together.

Try to keep like types grouped together within a structure, this will
prevent unwanted byte padding as much as possible.
