Must be an odd version of ksh, as both ksh and bash in recent versions provide shell arithmetics:
$ echo $((++c))

There is a funny inconsistency in the above posting:
My Firefox browser still shows the error

in my reply/quote the error is magically corrected.

BTW simple and portable is
awk 'length==4499 {print NR, " has length 4499"}' input.dat
