There are four different representations of _strtoi64() in the
different c libraries
(/MD, /MT, their debug flavors) and then multiple representations depending
on your choice of the optimization level combined with /Ob# (1 or 2) for inline
expansion. One or more is clearly bugged.

Another option is that the wrong errno is in use in your resulting
testall.exe vs
the libapr-1.dll, because of mismatched c libraries, but that doesn't
explain why
the negative test correctly toggles errno, while the positive test does not.
