Inspection of DataTypes.h shows that inttypes.h is included before the 
test for linux / definition of __STDC_LIMIT_MACROS.  This will not work, 
since stdint.h is implemented by including inttypes.h, which was already 
included the first time with __STDC_LIMIT_MACROS not defined.  I think 
the best solution to this problem is to change DataTypes.h to simply:

  #include <inttypes.h>

Which will work on both Linux and Solaris without requiring platform detection.
