Isn't it the default on 64 bit platforms, as you mentioned some messages

No. --with-wide-int causes Emacs to use 'long long int' for EMACS_INT, even if pointers fit in a narrower type. On my platform (Fedora 23 x86-64), EMACS_INT is 'long int' because that is wide enough for pointers. Although 'long int' and 'long long int' both happen to be 64-bit integers on my platform, 'long int' is a bit nicer (e.g., printf formats can use "%ld" rather than "%lld"), so using --with-wide-int would be a minor loss.
