Errors in moving to 64-bit architecture

Here are some errors that one may encounter when compiling old code on a new, 64-bit architecture.  I have seen all but #7, and I have seen other errors similar to that one, involving how headers are included.  Many, fortunately, would be caught by examination of compiler warnings, but explicit casts will usually suppress those warnings.

The main advice seems to be: Let the compiler help you.
