I faced this on ARM where `wchar_t` is defined as `unsigned int` by musl but it's `unsigned short` from compilers point of view. I'd expect similar issues with other targets. Would it make sense to use `__WCHAR_TYPE__` for `wchar_t` when it's available (it's already used for i386, but for different reason)? Presumably, as compiler is responsible for creating wide literals, libc would better agree with it on the type. Of course, this makes sense only if you intend to support builds with `-fshort-wchar` flag, which are not very common I believe. Best regards, Sergey
