Hmmm.. I dont think the Zope 2.5b4 Linux binary is built this way, but 
in both Zope 2.4.4 and 2.5.0 it probably should be.  We'd probably need 
someone to confirm that this doesn't cause problems on older (2.0, 2.2) 
Linux systems.  FWIW, I built Python 2.1.2 with large file support on 
Linux 2.4 using the instructions on the posix-largefiles doc page in the 
Python docs without a problem.

Dunno.  Was it compiled in before?  Isn't this an issue that is solved 
in a roundabout way by not having stack pointer computation bugs in the 
first place?  I'm not sure how all of these bugs interact with each other.

Sorry to hear that.
