The correct fix to this is to use the autoconf macro that checks for 64 =
bit file size support, and use that throughout. We've talked about this =
on a number of occasions, but the impact on the fileserver (in =
particular) has made everyone too nervous to make the switch. We should =
probably do so, though, as it will solve a whole host of 64bit issues.
