I made a patch along those lines a few months back that's sitting in
the patches section at SF ( http://tinyurl.com/2gq3xt ). It doesn't
assume the availability of anything bigger than long by using
BOOST_HAS_LONG_LONG and BOOST_HAS_MS_INT64.
It also adjusts uint_value_t and friends so you can request values >=
Hopefully something like this will get applied once 1.34 is dealt with.
