As long as the API (and ABI) never exports things like struct stat and
offset_t (ie things that are affected by enabling LFS) it should not
matter if you link things that are compiled with LFS with things that
are not.

However that define should never be in a header file, especially
not one that other applications can use. Doing that should warrant
a hefty bugreport.
