Shouldn't Autoconf determine what needs to be done for
large-file support? If you call the AC_SYS_LARGEFILE macro
in the configure script, your build will be transparently
switched to large-file support by providing the necessary
compiler flags (like -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64).

The script coming with GHC 5.04.3 doesn't seem
to make use of this. Maybe adding the macro call is all that
is to fixing this problem?
