If think that we had 'something' on the source tree that tried to
provide large file support in libcurl even with a 4 byte off_t. But
maybe it was only for Windows, I'll have to look it up.

Concerning Dan's comment about disabling large file support. If the
system provides it as a default without AC_SYS_LARGEFILE having to
define anything at all, then it will not be possible to actually
disable it. IOW it will only be possible disable it on those systems
where AC_SYS_LARGEFILE actually has to define 'something' to enable
