I see the statement, but I also see from a fresh download of httpd
2.0.55 that there is (at least partial) largefile support.  Not
necessarily recommended for all platforms, but it is there.  Check out
the CHANGES file... in this case though, they may have enabled it by
default for all platforms, which would indeed be a new thing.
