Our fileservers are built with this option but salvage after a crash.
Is there something else I am missing?  I am running 1.4.1 with a 2.4 linux kernel.
The full configure was thus:

./configure --with-linux-kernel-headers=/usr/src/linux-2.4.33 \
	--enable-fast-restart \
	--enable-bitmap-later \
	--enable-bos-new-config \
	--enable-largefile-fileserver \
