no need to mention 'respectively'.

Technically, tv_nsec is a signed long, and you should be using %ld
instead of %lu.

Yuck.  I've nearly got consensus to use the gnulib stat-time module, in
which case this would instead be the much simpler:
Ok, that sounds good. But what exactly does 'nearly' mean?
#include "stat-time.h"

atime = get_stat_atime(sb);
mtime = get_stat_mtime(sb);
ctime = get_stat_mtime(sb);
Of course, you are absolutely right. It is much cleaner to use stat-time.
But before we can use the gnulib stat-time module, we have to update
.gnulib and bootstrap.conf; and I'm holding off on the .gnulib update
until after fixed Automake is available in at least Fedora 17 (right
now, unless you are manually using automake 1.11.6 or newer, you are
injecting a security bug into every other package that uses automake).
So any idea how long this will take?
Also, with gnulib's stat-time module, my earlier suggestion to include
birthtime would be as simple as:

btime = get_state_birthtime(sb);

along with filtering the display:

if (btime->tv_nsec == -1) {
   /* birth time not available */
