I guess the newer GTK include a system header that defines the uint type
or something like this.

Also Matthew, markdown_config_get_uint_key() have a default_value
argument (the one with type uint), but the default used is hard-coded as
12, it doesn't look so legitimate ;)

Or simply not use this function, or emulate it.  I think it's easy
enough not to use the cheap and mean solution of higher dep for this.
