Fine. I am working on that, but may it will take till January (reasoned by

It does not depend on the version of Windows, but on the version of the MS 
runtime. E.g. the standard runtime 'msvcrt.dll' does not support the 'll' 
proper, but the the 'msvcr80.dll' (the new runtime of MS which is not part 
of the OS itself) supports it. Reasoned by the fact, that mingw just 
supports the 'msvcrt.dll' variant (it is part of the OS), I think gcc 
should just support this one.

I took the information about the tables out of the msdn library 
documentation and tested it by doing a canadian cross on gcc for the 
64-bit mingw. I agree, that there should be a test case probing the 
supported and non-supported formatting rules (as e.g. C99).
