What, exactly, is the problem?  Transfer-Encoding: chunked means just that:
it breaks up the result into smaller chunks which look like:

size (in hex)

Whatever is on the recipient side must understand the Transfer-Encoding
directive and recombine the pieces.  I haven't actually checked, but it
seems like apache defaults to a chunked transfer for files.

There may be some extra stuff added to safely transmit the data, which is
where you are getting the extra 10 bytes.
