I don't know much about that.  My experience told me
that libc5 system had llseek, but glibc system don't.
And _llseek has just worked on both of them.

If you know much about 64bit file access, then please
let me know, what point do you see of using 
"just plain lseek and _FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64".
And, I want to know from which version of glibc
we can use it safely (or can we use it on libc5 too ?)

It will help me to explain this to the upstream.
