Some time ago meaning around 1997? FreeBSD has had 64-bit file access
since at least 2.2.0. I don't remember if earlier versions had support
for it or not.

Actually, off_t is equal to __int64_t, which is a long long. Which
headers are you looking at?
/usr/include/machine/ansi.h:69:#define _BSD_OFF_T_ __int64_t
/usr/include/sys/types.h:82:typedef _BSD_OFF_T_ off_t; /* file offset */
/usr/include/sys/_types.h:49:typedef __int64_t __off_t; /* file offset */
/usr/include/sys/types.h:194:typedef __off_t off_t; /* file
