Sure, we could just make a "static inline strchrnul()" for use when
!HAVE_STRCHRNUL. No objection.

Well, the problem with just doing s/int64/long long/g is that the
code would then fail on compilers without a "long long" type.
We could ifdef our way around that, but I don't think the code would
end up prettier.

Given that we only ever use "ll" modifiers via INT64_FORMAT, and that
that'll only be set to "ll" if int64 is indeed "long long", those code
paths should be dead code in any situation where the type pun is wrong.
