Which pat of "just that"?  Does it make USE_LSB_TAG work under AIX and HP-UX?

Or does it fallback on wide-int when USE_LSB_TAG can't be used?
I think using wide-int silently is not a good idea.  So if USE_LSB_TAG
can't be used, I think it'd be better to fail (with a message
suggesting to report the problem and use wide-int in the mean time).
