Users like enumerator constants as a somewhat more type-checked and/or
symbolically-printable-in-gdb substitute for #define constants.  As such,
they're as likely to have big values in systems code as #defines are.

Regarding host support for 64-bit integers, 32-bit systems that don't have
64-bit long long are surely a vanishing breed.  In the rare case where a host
doesn't support 64-bit ints, binutils will simply remain as crippled as it is
already.  Fixing this bug just lifts an arbitrary size restriction and allows
debug info to print as well as it can within the capabilities of the host.
