There was a discussion about "long long" in the ./ tools (like a
year ago) and  - if I remember correctly Minix people gave up on
supporting lack of longlong. Personally I don't see any reason to
support systems (compilers) without it in pkgsrc and C99 might be
official bare minimum. (I was told that lack of C99 in BSD/OS already
halts possibility to bootstrap there).

If there is an agreement on it, I will drop these harmless checks and so
make clean room for strtoi(3) addition in libnbcompat, based on
strtoll(3) with longlong support assumption (of course via intmax_t etc).
