Is portable, since recent commit by me a5202bc9 for the Bessel
function from boost has such a literal (line 118, swresample/resample)
and does not seem to have caused build failures anywhere. Actually,
there the L was an artifact left over from Boost and I will remove it.
Will push in light of this. Also will push the trivial removal of the
L leftover in swresample.
