I'm afraid I don't.  For example, we use `long' by default, even when
it's wider than `int', which I suppose would be the natural host wide

Oh!  I think I get it!  It's the widest integer type that is natively
supported by the host, without having to go through auxiliary
functions to perform adds, subtracts, etc.  Right?

IMO, a 32-bit-only port should not have MAX_LONG_TYPE_SIZE set to 64.
This would fix the native 32-bit ppc-linux problem.

As for the fact that the 64-bit AIX port works without a 64-bit
HOST_WIDE_INT, I suggest one to try gcc.c-torture/execute/991014-1.c
and a few other tests whose names I don't recall at the moment, using
a GCC hosted on a 32-bit machine.
