OK, my wrong. I see there's no provision for detecting large file
support in the configure script. I thought there was provision for that.

I guess my question was why large file support was left out of APR in
the first place, not why it was left out of APR RPM packages in the
first place. But then there's probably no reason, other than developers
were not aware/interested...
