Okay, well, here's the answer. 
 
To get any files larger than 32-bits worth to work on any program on a 32-bit machine, you
have 
to compile that program with -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 .  I've 
dropped a query onto the dev list as to why we don't do that by default or at least provide
an 
easier way for the user to know how to do it themselves.  For now, here's what you do. 
 
Recompile Apache like so: 
 
CFLAGS="-D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64" ./configure <foo> 
 
where <foo> is the arguments you'd normally pass to configure.  Then it will all work
beautifully.  
:) 
 
I'm going to go ahead and close this PR out, but I'll make sure we come up with some easier
way 
to do this in future releases (maybe a --enable-largefiles configure flag?). 
 
Thanks for using Apache!
