That is my intention at least :).

Sure, I will send it separately.

I notice that config.log has this to say:

configure:13273: checking whether cc supports -std=c99
configure:13291: result: yes
configure:13304: checking whether cc supports -xc99
configure:13327: result: no
configure:13335: checking whether we need -std=c99 as a flag for cc
configure:13365: result: no

On one hand this would make me assume that -std=c99 would not be used at
all, but it still is in some places. Maby the configure script test
should include such an enumerator list?

I was thinking since this use of long long is necessary, the flag might
be good to add for other platforms as well if they support it.
