> Right. alpha doesn't define WCHAR_TYPE_SIZE, ia64 seems to do what you
# grep WCHAR_TYPE defaults.h config/alpha/linux.h
defaults.h:#define WCHAR_TYPE_SIZE INT_TYPE_SIZE
config/alpha/linux.h:#define WCHAR_TYPE "int"
# grep INT_TYPE_SIZE config/alpha/*.h
config/alpha/alpha.h:#define INT_TYPE_SIZE 32
So WCHAR_TYPE_SIZE is 32 for Linux/alpha.
