	On 2.6 (32-bit) no: but the failure is an artifact of the
	typedef longlong_t long; problem I found yesterday.

	On 2.7 (64-bit!) with just -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE configure
	runs to completion (as it did before), and is
	compiling as I write.

	The Sun documentation is adamant about setting
	_FILE_OFFSET_BITS  to 64 before including any headers:
	from looking at the LFS documentation at
	it doesn't appear to be standard...
