Eh, no.

I'll just point out that Linux (actually, glibc I think) still has
major problems with 64-bit files and network code.

This shouldn't be too much of a problem because BDB will try to
hide that, but APR will *not* handle large files on Linux since
they disable sendfile() with 64bit files. Since APR is
network-oriented and we like sendfile(), we don't allow 64-bit
file mode in APR on Linux. And, consequently, we've never enabled
64-bit support on Unix - only Win32 has largefile support in
APR. -- justin
