Hi.

It's not clear from the description that this is a largefile problem.
As an experiment, what happens if you build with CFLAGS="-g -O2
-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE" ?
[not all of these macros may be necessary, configure should be
defining _FILE_OFFSETS_BITS=64, THIS IS JUST AN EXPERIMENT]
