Please read APR's STATUS under the entry for "Deal with largefiles 
properly on those platforms that support it."

In short, your patch wouldn't be enough by itself.  I believe if the 
platform has largefile support (as detected by that m4 macro in the 
STATUS file), APR should always use largefiles.  I believe that is 
something that the portability layer should hide from the 
applications where possible.  -- justin
