Would the comment be clearer if phrased like this?

  # We want to test -LX where X is the last line of the file, so we need
  # to compute the number of lines in the file, which normally would be
  # done via 'wc -l'.  In this case, however, the last line of 'file' is
  # incomplete, so 'wc' reports one fewer than the actual line count. To
  # adjust for this anomaly, we must add one to the result of 'wc'.
