NACK to the bulk of this patch.  Gnulib already guarantees that we have
large-file support (and therefore, off_t should already be off64_t on
platforms that support dual mode off_t sizing); we should NOT be
explicitly referencing the non-standard off64_t or lseek64, since they
do not exist on all platforms.

Agree that changing that one mistaken type should fix things.  Can you
resubmit as a v2 with a fixed commit message, at which point I will feel
more comfortable giving ack?
