Excellent question.  They do have fsetpos/fgetpos, and I think they
think you are supposed to use those.  However, they don't do seek from
current position, and they don't take an off_t, so I am confused myself.

I did ask on the mailing list and everyone kind of agreed it was a
missing feature.  However, because of the way we call fseeko not knowing
if it is a quad or a long, I think we have to add the checks to prevent
such wild seeks from happening.
