It is one thing to build and another to execute properly under all 
I have not tested newlib with a 64-bit address platform and my queries 
to see if
the gnupro toolchains shipped a 64-bit newlib platform turned up no, as 
So, I will have to say that newlib is not 64-bit proven at present and 
it is a todo
to verify/support such platforms.
