I disagree. Pax isn't built with large file support (because <fts.h>
doesn't allow that), so even if eglibc is fixed, pax would need to be
fixed. Blocking bug should be used instead.

The problem is not having fts_read64, but having a different FTSENT 
structure. This mean changing the glibc ABI, not something we want to do
only in Debian. This has to be dealt upstream.
