Gnulib provides the C99 stdint types even for C89 compilers.  I think we
should feel free to use uint*_t everywhere.

src/cli.c does not include stdint.h though.  Could it be that simple?
I've pushed a patch.  Vincent, please try adding '#include <stdint.h>'
at the top of src/cli.c after the '#include <config.h>' line.
