This is probably the solution.  it's unclear that ANSI will support
64bit ints in any reasonable fashion, though.

that's not at all practical; 64-bit ints are fundamental to some of
the prototypes, etc., in the system.  if the prototypes aren't there,
you'll lose.

you'll find this on any other 4.4Lite-derived system.  That includes
the next release of BSDI and the next release of FreeBSD, as well.
