That's LP64. longs and pointers 8 bytes, ints remain 4.
LLP64 means other than for pointers, you have to say
"long long" to get an 8-byte entity. ILP64 means all
of int, long, pointer are 8-byte.
(Anti-spam stuff: to reply remove the "xyz" from the
address xyzmats at laplaza.org. Not that it helps much...)
