I can switch the default when the branch is merged.  I ran the current
configure script on an Itanium system with --disable-64 and it prints

  64-bit array dims and indexing:     false

at the end of the run, so it seems to work for me.

Sure, I can include long long easily enough, but for 64-bit indexing
to really work, don't you also need 64-bit pointers?  Are there any
32-bit systems (what would that mean, 32-bit ints only?) that have
64-bit pointers, 32-bit ints, 32-bit long ints, and 64-bit long long
