	Righto: I think I see what's happening...
	Samba explicitly calls statvfs64() function, and
	the sun implementation triggered by 
	only makes statvfs() visible, using the 64-bit
	sizes of the various variables.

	I **think** this means we should check for
	a native statvfs with -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE
	and -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64, and see if it
	_LARGEFILE_SOURCE really means "migrate all
	32-bit calls to 64-bit,. without changing the
	function names or data structure names, just
	as if you were running on a machine with
	longs and pointers of 64 bits"

	_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE means "provide xxx64() 
	functions and structs, so you can mix standard
	32-bit calls with 64-bit calls".

	The latter is, in my considered (ie, not humble at all)
	opinion, a usefull kludge, suitable for a quick
	hack around a problem.  Not for real code!]

	I loked at my 2.7 system, it ends with a sucessful
	compile-check of statfvs:
configure:7292: checking how to get filesystem space usage
configure:7299: checking statvfs64 function (SVR4)
configure:7351: checking statvfs function (SVR4)
configure:7648: cc -o conftest -O   conftest.c -lsocket -lnsl -ldl 
-lpam 1>&5

-lnsl -ld
l -lpam -c "
acomp           real    0.0     user    0.0     sys     0.0
Note that none of the -D options are set: this machine is
64-bit already, and sysconf knows that.

Next I configure on a 2.6 32-bit system with Sun cc:
it shudders to a halt after...
checking how to get filesystem space usage
checking statvfs64 function (SVR4)... no
checking statvfs function (SVR4)... no
checking for 3-argument statfs function (DEC OSF/1)... no
checking for two-argument statfs with statfs.bsize member (AIX,
4.3BSD)... no
checking for four-argument statfs (AIX-3.2.5, SVR3)... no
checking for two-argument statfs with statfs.fsize member (4.4BSD and
NetBSD)... no
checking for two-argument statfs with struct fs_data (Ultrix)... no
checking configure summary
configure: error: summary failure. Aborting config

In the config.log, this was from the compile line
configure:9092: cc -o conftest -O  -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE
-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64  conftest.c -lsec -lsocket -lnsl  -lpam 1>&5

I think the previous compile (of statvf()) should have
succeeded.  I'll look at it next and report.
