I saw whole bunch of %ld, %lld stuff in the code which will IMHO
never be portable no matter what type you use.

With APR (and some other projects) we detect those types
at configure time, and define printf/scanf macros
eg. apr_int64_t, apr_uint64_t and then have

This makes printf/scanf code a little bit longer:
eg. printf("Use some %" APR_UINT64_FMT_T " 64-bit integer\n", (apr_uint64_t)foo);
but it is portable, especially between 32 and 64 bit compilers

Think we should use something like that, because we already
have the detection code (from other projects) and it works well
for a variety of different compilers.

At the end it's more or less discipline and search/replace,
and I was going to add them anyhow.
