Interesting.  My first inclination was to ask why not just change the
variables to be of type uintmax_t instead of uint64_t (since we're
already changing their types already), and then get rid of the cast.
But I went digging through the source code based on your comment.
Almost all the existing examples in the codebase were off_t and size_t
values; there was only one case with uint64_t...but that one case led
me to commit 5be507fc95 (Use PRIuMAX instead of 'unsigned long long'
in show-index 2007-10-21), and that commit does suggest doing exactly
as you say here.

I'll fix it up.
