As I recall, tcc was lacking a feature used in the glibc headers that
caused problems in configure when large file supported was enabled. I got
around that problem by deliberately not enabling large file support :^)
It sounds like the new configure macros are doing everything possible to
enable it now. You could blame the problem on my misconfigured system
(which it is), but at least it was able to compile before without the
large file support. I wonder if it's worthwhile (or even possible)
adding a configure flag to disable large file support use.
