I'd use the new C standard's int64_t, since you're specifically looking
for 64-bit width integers.

These exact-width integer types should really be defined in <inttype.h>,

IT's probably worth chatting the the NetBSD folks about this, since
that's where we got our version of test(1).

As long as your operands are integers, POSIX.2 is happy.
