  On FreeBSD/arm, any value > 50 bits will result in a rediculously huge
  number being returned for mktime and timegm calls.  Choose 48 because
  that works well.  This does reduce the dynamic range of tm_year from
  about 2 billion years down to "only" about 9 million years.  Please
  contact me if this restriction poses a problem.
  Due to the complexity of the code, I admit that I didn't trace down
  what, exactly, was overflowing with longer bits.  This fixes software
  that we run on the embedded systems we have.
