True.  Of course, you may be even better off - for NetBSD - to use

	sprintf(interp->result, "%qd", statBuf.stsize);

Or, if you want portability, in the NetBSD system-specific section put
something like

	#define SIGNED_LONGEST_FMT "%qd"
	#define SIGNED_LONGEST_CAST (quad_t)

and then write

	sprintf(interp->result, SIGNED_LONGEST_FMT, SIGNED_LONGEST_CAST statBuf.stsize);

It's unfortunate, really, that you have to do this sort of stuff; used
to be you could count on "long" being the biggest size available.  But
I don't see any good way around it....
