Sorry, I meant apr_size_t and that seems to correspond to C89's size_t and
is not supposed to be used for file sizes. apr_off_t is 64 bits, of course.

I guess it would work (on a 32 bit machine, svn_filesize_t and apr_off_t are
both typedefed to "long long int" anyway), but I wanted to make the types
the same as those of "offset" and "size" in
libsvn_fs_fs/fs.h:representation_t where the values ultimately get assigned

But since this is the first time I've looked at the Subversion sources, I
can't really recommend anything (besides making sure that base_length is 64

I haven't noticed any other instances, but then, I've not searched for them
either. All I can say is that with the patch, Subversion seems to handle
large files just fine (but I've done only very limited testing so far).
