large file support

I'm working on adding large file support (>2GB) to an application that uses curl. I'm using libcurl 7.11.0 on linux. I found that the "contentlength" local variable in Curl_readwrite is declared as a "long", which is only 32 bits wide on my platform. I changed this declaration to "off_t" and the GET functionality worked for me.

I'm nowhere near done making all these large file changes, so I'll let you know if I find anything else in libcurl.
