Your response doesn't correspond to the patch nor to what I described.

Nowhere did I say that int64_t must correspond to "long".  The patch
specifically chooses "long" or "long long" based on the
__SIZEOF_LONG__ *and* __SIZEOF_LONG_LONG__.

Currently libstdc++ configure tests for the type at configuration
time.  My patch changes the behavior to retain the test for the type
at configure time but chooses "long" or "long long" at compile time.
I don't unilaterally choose "long" or "long long" as the type, but
rely on the configure test to ensure that __int64_t is a typedef for
either "long" or "long long".

The patch does assume that if __int64_t is a typedef for "long" or
"long long" and this is a 32/64 multilib, then the typedef for the
other 32/64 mode is an equivalent typedef, which is the case for
GLIBC, AIX, and other systems that I have checked.

Thanks, David
