   On my system (PowerPC 750, GNU/Linux, GCC 3.3) I see 2147483647.

   My trival patches? No, of course :-)

   One person kindly contacted me off-list saying I should define 
LONG_MODULO_BROKEN; I hardcoded it in config.h and that fixed the issue. 
In my opinion we need a check at configure time; it's easy. If I have 
understood correctly that person told me that such a check existed in 
release 1.0.7 for the 68000, which has the same problem.
