I don't fully understand it myself, but I can report that the large file
support is definitely not working right on HP-UX.  The problem seems to
be that CVS thinks off_t is long long, but fseeko is only expecting a
long and there's no prototype in scope for it since it's only declared
in <stdio.h> if _LARGEFILE_SOURCE is #define'd, which it apparently
isn't.  I think the largefile support needs a *lot* more work before
it's ready for prime time -- it seems to be an arcane subject requiring
a lot of black magic to get it working on any particular platform let
alone working in any kind of portable manner.
