Sure. I know it, you know it, but other people probably won't. That's
why it is extremely confusing - as you see - and that's why I proposed
to have sth like "--disable-long-long-time_t" or "--disable-int64_t-
time_t" or "--disable-64-bit-time_t" instead, which would possibly be
less confusing. These ./configure options are also meant for casual
users, which don't read newlib's mailing list.
