You're right, it's not a big deal. FWIW,
when I asked on the Ecasound list, Kai Vehmanen replied that the
option correctly means largefile support for 32bit system.
To avoid future confusion, ideally configure should be patched.

Is this on a 64bit system perhaps? I believe on 64bit systems,                  
   
_FILE_OFFSET_BITS has not effect, and then the above checks should be           
   
correct.                                                                        
   
                                                                                
   
So if this is indeed the case, then the things are working as they              
   
should, but ecasound's configure summary is just misleading (it should          
   
say "largefile for 32bit systems...: yes/no".
