However all software is *not* written to use LFS extended versions
of things. Often using defines of:

-D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64

in the Makefile of said software CFLAGS is enough, but that may
still sometimes not be enough. Specifically if the system will
then use some libraries which are not LFS compatible.
