No offence meant, but why are you adding configure options if you don't
know what they do?

** New configure option --with-wide-int.
With it, Emacs integers typically have 62 bits, even on 32-bit machines.
On 32-bit hosts, this raises the limit on buffer sizes from about 512
MiB to about 2 GiB.
So you can ignore this unless you are using a 32-bit platform and
really, really, need to edit buffers larger than 512MB.
