I guess my point was that we could use the system strtol() for
EBCDIC machines on 1.3 to handle this special case.  Since those
machines are typically confined to one particular compiler and
library, we can easily verify that those strtol() implementations
are correct.

#define ap_strtol strtol

Just a thought.  -- justin
