Please forgive me for replying here instead of bugzilla: I need an account there
but *now* isn't a time to create it (it's 04:41 here), and tomorrow I'll forget
about this whole topic...

Watcom C has 64bit integers for a very long time, I think on ALL supported
platforms, including 16bit (!!) MS-DOS.  If memory serves me right, it is
called _i64 or something like that.  I don't have watcom handy to check that,
but it should be trivial (this type mentioned in manual, both printed and
online), and is used in headers.  I think that a simple typedef should help
here and close this issue (and a configure test for the typedef).
