I compiled PHP x64 from the Windows Sourcecode but the integer is only 32Bit.

Build Date => Jan 29 2010 13:32:28
Compiler => MSVC9 (Visual C++ 2008)
Architecture => x64
Configure Command => cscript /nologo configure.js  "--enable-snapshot-build"

Reproduce code:
php.exe -r "echo PHP_INT_MAX;"

Expected result:
Should be somthing like 9223372036854775807

Actual result:

That's expected, we use a 32bit for integer and unlike other platforms, it is portable (same type won't vary, in C).

Just to make this clear: "we" means "Windows" in that case, the Windows developers and Visual Studio developers decided to use a 32bit type for representing the "long" data type. Many Unix(-like) operating systems decided to use a 64bit type for "long" on 64bit machines. The C standard allows both. PHP uses whatever the operating system uses. We have plans for a platform independent large integer but that needs some work, maybe it appears some day, maybe not.
