The defines are:
_LARGEFILE_SOURCE Some more functions for correct standard I/O.
_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE Additional functionality from LFS for large files.
_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=N Select default filesystem interface.

__USE_ is internal - you can't set it from your application - and if
you do, you might not get what you like.
