Sure. We could start linking against glibc. The configure script
automatically detects the machine sizes and "does the right thing" when
you say something like:
To declare an unsigned long long (on an x86).
Caveat: AFAIK, glibc has been ported to everything, but it may introduce
unforseen porting problems (like it might be difficult to get glibc
installed). For *nix systems, glibc is non-issue.
