>( _bitmask   symbols   [ basetype ] )   →   ctype?
   symbols   :   ( or   symbol?   list? )  

> (_bitmask '(a b))
_bitmask: bad spec in '(a b)
> (_bitmask 'a)
cdr: contract violation
  expected: pair?
  given: 'a
Works just fine:

 > (cast 5 _int (_bitmask '((a 1) (b 2))))
> (cast 5 _int (_bitmask '(a = 1 b = 2)))

So there is an error either in documentation or in ffi/unsafe. I expected (_bitmask '(a b c)) to be treated as (_bitmask '(a = 1 b = 2 c = 4)) and so on.

Plese, fix either docs, or module. 

I have Racket 5.3.4 @ Debian testing.
