We have to write another function because fsetpos doesn't do SEEK_CUR so
you have to implement it with more complex code. It isn't a drop in

Right. What we are assuming now is that off_t can be seeked using
whatever we defined for fseeko, which is incorrect in one, and now I
hear more than one OS.
