Isn't there anybody else that does/needs this?
It would be nice to have this automatically set during configure/build time,
and any architecture dependencies could be done at that time. OpenSSH has
this feature. If the architectire supports it it gets configured
automatically, no worry. I see other applications adding this to their
configuration setup as well. Currently to get large file support for
kerberos I have to know and set an appropriate env variable to get it to
work. A pain when supporting numerous architectures. Isn't this what a
configuration script is for?
