[Bug-XBoard] We distribute wrongly compiled WinBoard binaries

The current source does not work correctly when compiled with gcc+Cygwin,
which I use (with the -mno-cygwin flag) to generate the binary distribution and
installer package.

The u64Display format that is used (%lld) will not work to read all 64-bits in scanf, and lead to a phase error of any following arguments in printf. This leads to incorrect operation of node-based time controls, as they use the node count from the thinking
output, which now has an un-initialized most-significant word.

It seems that %I64u is needed here. This will produce compiler warnings for formats not matching the variable, but it does read and print the u64 nodes count correctly.

Btw, I upgraded Cygwin, and the upgraded make now encounters a fatal error in the makefile. A dependency of wgamelist.c on "config.h." is listed there (with an extra trailing period!), and make now chokes on that. I see makefile.ms contains the same
error (for as long as they exist).
