64-bit ints for array indexing

I'm running octave 2.1.52 in 64-bit mode on an opteron running linux, and I ran into the limitation of not being able to work with arrays containing more than 2^31 elements, which is apparently because octave uses 32 bit ints for array indexing. There was a simple workaround, but I was wondering: has anyone compiled a version of octave that uses long ints for array indexing? Which files would I have to be modified? Are there any plans to incorporate this into future releases of octave?

thanks a lot,
