[vtkusers] Can't compile 5.2.1, CVS. *fixed* Bug in Cmake scripts with 64bit systems

Fixed the problem. Turns out it's an issue related to 64bit systems.

In the CMake scripts, it is incorrectly determining that my system doesn't
support "long long"'s for istream/ostream. Despite this, it would still use
long long's as vtkIdType. (This should generate a warning)

Thus VTK would try to build without a compiler flag enabling long long
support, thereby generating errors anywhere a vtkIdType (long long) is fed
to istream/ostream.
