So a common way to typedef something is to use enum:

enum uint64_t : ulong;

This gives you a new type that works pretty much just like ulong, but 
will not implicitly convert from ulong.

However, is likely interpreting this as an enumeration type, 
where it has to match one of the enum members. But since this isn't an 
enumeration in the standard way, it fails (it has no members!)

This code reproduces the problem on

void main()
     import core.stdc.config;
     import std.conv;
     auto x = 0.5;
     auto y =!__c_ulonglong;

Note the code in druntime which defines __c_ulonglong:

I'll file a bug.
