APR 1.0, and thus Apache 2.1-dev, uses a 64-bit file offset on 32-bit
Unix-ish platforms which implement the LFS standard.  So the upcoming
Apache 2.2 release will handle large files by default on modern
Unix-ish platforms.

I believe there is a way to build Apache 2.0.x to use 64-bit file
offsets, but that isn't the default build.
