Without doubt APR doesn't specify O_LARGEFILE. However, it is not always
possible to just specify it. If we could it would simply be specified all
the time by libc or indeed in the kernel. It changes 'size' of a number of
the related objects such as the seek pointer and that needs to be
considered. I guess what I am saying is that APR is to blame if and only
if they intend to support opening large files. If APR has this as a
limitation then the 'bug' is in our expectations of it and we can't use it.
