Actually, both wxwindows2.4 and audacity were compiled with
_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 and _LARGE_FILES defined, and these should have no
effect on ia64 anyways.  On ia64, off_t should always equal "long".

This came up on debian-ia64 recently:


It looks like wxwindows2.4 was somehow built incorrectly, causing off_t
== long long.  It appears that rebuilding wxwindows2.4 on ia64 with a
newer toolset fixes the problem, though this fix has not yet been
uploaded to the archive.

Ron, this does appear to be a problem with the wxwindows2.4 packages
currently in the archive for ia64.  Please re-open this bug if you
agree.  A rebuild or a binary-only NMU should solve the problem.

Also, I believe #239401 is a duplicate of this bug.
