To do this you have to change some constants in myisam.h and unireg.h
and also change the key_map typedef from long to longlong.
The main problem is that we haven't tested the code with more than 32
keys. The main problem is that I may have have missed some
key_map variable and this is still declared as 'ulong' instead of type
'key_map'. In theory it wouldn't be that hard to change 3.23.2 to use
