It would be great if you find some time to work on this.  I must admit
that I know the LFS acronym, but that's it :-)

For FreeType's Unix support, I suggest the following route:

  . Use the `AC_SYS_LARGEFILE' autoconf macro (in `configure.raw') to
    get the necessary compiler flags and macro definitions.

  . Use the `_LARGE_FILES' and `_FILE_OFFSET_BITS' macros (defined by
    `AC_SYS_LARGEFILE') where necessary to add new code.

Ideally, I would like to have a generic solution (cf. the
`FT_SIZEOF_INT' stuff in `ftconfig.h'), but I guess that this is not
possible due to the need of setting compiler flags for LFS support...
