long long (two words) was added to the C99 standard- one of my beefs with 
said standard.  Most conformant C89 compilers don't support long long, or 
at least didn't last time I checked (it's been a couple of years since I 
had an account on a non-Linux box).

So now the question is: what does the GMP development community feel about 
these older compilers?
