You're right - the 64 bit RHEL5 system showed sizeof(time_t) to be 8, 
while Leopard on my Powerbook G4 said 4, as did RHEL4/i386.

Looking at what APR (the Apache portable runtime) does with its portable 
version of time_t, it explicitly defines it as a 64 bit signed type. I 
suspect gnucash may have to do the same.
