The overflow code tries hard to avoid assuming it knows what INT_MIN and
INT_MAX are --- this is maybe not so important for int4 but it is for
int8 (because of our support for int8-less machines).  I don't
immediately see how to make this test without assuming you know the
value of INT_MIN, but we ought to try to come up with one.

We do see funny behavior on Intel chips even without Windows, so it'd
be better to not #ifdef WIN32 but use the same overflow test for

I would imagine the same problem arises with int8, has anyone checked?
Also, the overflow tests in the intNmul routines seem vulnerable.
