    I don't think so because the "split into multiple bucket" code was
only enabled if both large_file and send_file was enabled.  Which meant
that on a non-large_file build the check for ENABLE_SENDFILE_OFF wasn't
there anyway.  If they have large_file support and don't have send_file
(ie. NetWare), then the file must be split into multiple buckets or it
doesn't work (32/64 bit type mismatches in the file size).  If they have
large_file support and send_file, then everything is as it was before. 
I'm not sure why a check for ENABLE_SENDFILE_OFF is here anyway.  This
code doesn't really have anything to do with whether or not sendfile is
used.  All it does is split a large file into multiple smaller buckets. 
If later down the line sendfile is used to actually send the file from
multiple buckets, great.  If not, that is fine also (as demonstrated by
the fact that NetWare doesn't have sendfile() and it all works fine).

Ok that is a messy one to grok but I think I got it...

Haven't you broken the EnableSendfile off directive if the user is
trying to avoid
using sendfile on non-largefile builds?

E.g. if someone determines that their sendfile implementation is
broken, will
the server still react properly to EnableSendfile off on linux or bsd?
