Sigh. Now you're picking up coreutils' problem, trying to use 'unsigned long long' on a platform (Tandem NSK/OSS) that "doesn't" have such a thing, just because 'long long' exists. 16 errors trying to build printf.c.

I think the coreutils solution was to also pretend that 'long long' doesn't exist in this situation, since there are additionally some funky optimization problems with bit-shifting of long long.

(No, Paul, I have not yet bitched about getting the compiler upgraded...)

Obscurity: +5
