Semi-interestingly, this builds fine on NetBSD, but that doesn't mean it
was right.  Grepping the sources, the only uintptr_t I find is in that
file, and it was added recently to avoid a compiler warning.  So I just
added stdint in that file, which is much easier than adjusting the
build.  Please let me know if it builds for you now.

I see that nedit has a lot of patches.  Perhaps you could report the
needed cast in prefFile.c and missing include of stdint upstream, so
that these issues can be fixed in the next release:-)
