OK, thanks; should I submit these proposed changes again after 2006c
comes out, or just leave the issues alone for a while?  (No doubt you
have other things to do too....)

Like Ken, I'd also like to see the __LONG_LONG_MAX__ and HAVE_STDINT_H
patches for private.h, as this makes things more convenient for GCC
and glibc users.
