FreeBSD has 64-bit file offsets by default, which make -DLARGEFILE
hackery unnecessary.

Make sure you're using NFSv3 mounts (should be the default, but if not,
add "nfsv3" to the options column in fstab).  I cross-mount FreeBSD,
Tru64, and Solaris boxes via NFS and can access large files on all
combinations of client and server.
