Qt Developers,

For qtbase when I do a configure -developer-build; gmake on my Linux 
system I get a build error:
> cd qtendian/ && gmake -f Makefile
> /scratch/schumann/gerrit3/qtbase/tests/auto/corelib/global/qtendian

TestData's first member is a quint64.  Based on
> /scratch/schumann/gerrit3/qtbase/src/corelib/global/qglobal.h:203:typedef 
> unsigned long long quint64; /* 64 bit unsigned */
and quint64's name I would expect it to be a 64-bit integer.   
Apparently, it is merely a long some how in my environment.

Any ideas please?  Thanks as always for any help.
