No. I thought no-one cared, and I found this nice AC_SYS_LARGEFILE
autoconf macro that did all the work for me, so I decided to use it.
Hmm. I guess it would be possible to change the option to
--enable-large-files and put the check inside if block.

It doesn't really matter to me. I think the reason it was in my
./configure was that I had problems going from .99 to 1.0 without it or
moving from an old pIII to Xeon. If dovecot auto-corrects for this I'll
just go with the newer default (64).

Thanks for the quick reply.
