But the current idea is that you compile coreutils _with_ -O, and
'configure' finds a bug in 'long long int', so the code will then
assume that neither 'long long int' nor 'unsigned long long int' work,
and it won't depend on either type.

This should work with the most recent coreutils; have you tried it?

Please see page 18 of the June 2006 NonStop Software Roadmap
and look for the version numbers it mentions next to "unsigned long
long".  I'm afraid you'll have to take it from there; I don't use NSK.
If you're an HP customer, I'm sure if you call HP they'll tell you.
