The ll flag is specified by POSIX (2001, "System Interfaces", p. 404) and
is described by the Linux (dated 2000-10-16) and Solaris (SunOS 5.9)  
manpages.  I'd certainly call that a "standard way", even if it's not
supported everywhere.

Apparently 4.4 BSD and older versions of Linux libc used a "%q" flag for 
the same thing.  Would it be OK for Jesse to use a "configure" check to 
see which is supported, at compile-time?
