[krbdev.mit.edu #2883] 64-bit time_t issues

Greg Hudson via RT
I have discovered that I can take care of the immediate 32-bit Windows
platform problem with 64-bit time_t by defining in win-mac.h:

/* To ensure backward compatibility of the ABI use 32-bit time_t on
 * 32-bit Windows.
#ifndef _WIN64
#define _USE_32BIT_TIME_T

This will force the time_t to be 32-bits on 32-bit Windows.

Looking longer term I am going to recommend we make the following
prototype changes:

Currently krb5_timestamp is 32-bits.  Changing the prototypes to
krb5_timestamp will make it more obvious what the impact will be when
we redefine krb5_timestamp as a 64-bit value.   I believe krb5_timestamp
should be defined in terms of time_t.

Reading RFC 4120 I do not believe there are any bit length restrictions
on the number of seconds represented in a KerberosTime.  Therefore, we
should attempt to remove the restrictions in our own implementation.
