The culprit is that fileutils now defines _FILE_OFFSET_BITS 64 on the Hurd,
which sucks in functions like readdir64, lseek64 etc
backupfile.o(.text+0x154): warning: readdir64 is not implemented and will always fail
cp.o: In function `main':
cp.o(.text+0x150d): warning: stat64 is not implemented and will always fail
copy.o: In function `copy_reg':
copy.o(.text+0x63e): warning: lseek64 is not implemented and will always fail
Can we easily implement those?
I have to use --disable-largefile on the Hurd, it seems.
Funnily, the autoconf check doesn't bother to check if largefiles are really
checking for special C compiler options needed for large files... no
checking for _FILE_OFFSET_BITS value needed for large files... 64
checking for _LARGEFILE_SOURCE value needed for large files... no
checking for _LARGE_FILES value needed for large files... no
checking for _XOPEN_SOURCE value needed for large files... no
Is this a bug in fileutils?
