Even so, this is still worthwhile to do.

I assume your patch was created to apply to PARI 2.7.4 ?

Your patch changes the result of strtoi:
? install("strtoi",s)
  *** install: Warning: [install] updating 'strtoi' prototype; module not reloaded.
? strtoi("0b111")
%1 = 7
instead of 0.

Currently, GP printf can print in hexadecimal and octal but not in binary:
? printf("0x%x",3^32)
? printf("%o",3^32)
