stat64 et al.

I'm just working on my stat utility to be able to cope with files > 2GB and
filesystems > ?TB. While it is no big deal to use stat64() instead of stat()
but I wonder if there are old system out there that do not have stat64()
resp. statfs64() in their libc. I would prefer to not use lots of #ifdefs.
On the other hand I have no idea when these functions were introduced.

I noticed that on sparc the struct statbuf64 is not the same as on i386.
Some member variables are larger on sparc. Is there any protable way to
output these variables?
