With 'gcc -D_GNU_SOURCE -o width width.c':
sizeof(long)=4 LONG_WIDTH=64 LONG_MIN=-2147483648 LONG_MAX=2147483647

Yes LONG_WIDTH is 64 and it shouldn't be. I think the reason is the
following new code from the /usr/include/limits.h:

/* The integer width macros are not defined by GCC's <limits.h> before
   GCC 7, or if _GNU_SOURCE rather than
   __STDC_WANT_IEC_60559_BFP_EXT__ is used to enable this feature.  */
#if __GLIBC_USE (IEC_60559_BFP_EXT)
# if LONG_MAX == 0x7fffffffL
#  ifndef LONG_WIDTH
#   define LONG_WIDTH 32
#  endif
#  ifndef ULONG_WIDTH
#   define ULONG_WIDTH 32
#  endif
# else
#  ifndef LONG_WIDTH
#   define LONG_WIDTH 64
#  endif
#  ifndef ULONG_WIDTH
#   define ULONG_WIDTH 64
#  endif
# endif

but LONG_MAX is not defined in the check, it's defined later thus LONG_WIDTH is
incorrectly set to the 64 even on 32 bit platforms. I am going to open gcc bug

thanks & regards
