The problem that I was trying to fix here is that %llu is *not* the
correct format string for displaying a uint64_t.  The ia64 build machine
gives the warning:

uint64.c:9: warning: long long unsigned int format, uint64_t arg (arg 2)

when trying to compile:

uint64_t foo = 1234;
printf("%llu\n", foo);

the line:

printf("%lu\n", foo);

doesn't produce a warning.  i.e sizeof(long) == sizeof(long long).

Using the %PRIu64 stuff, ugly though it is, is the right way to squash
these warnings on all platforms.

I just checked some other build farm machines.  There are no warnings of
this type on Debian PPC/64 size but they are present on SLES9 x64_64.
