Re: Apache in pkgsrc has largefile support on?
: # Explicitly turn on large file support
: APACHE_CUSTOM_CFLAGS+= -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE
: APACHE_CUSTOM_CFLAGS+= -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
:DFly does not have largefile support yet, correct? So this should be
:turned off for DFly, yes?

All BSD systems have native large-file support. off_t is 64 bits.
This large-file crap was invented by Linux because they weren't forward
thinking enough to use a 64 bit off_t at the beginning, even though
at that time the BSDs already *HAD* 64 bit off_t's.
Actually, I think Microsoft is to blame too, but at least they had an
excuse 20 years ago.
