Yeah, you're right, I don't have largefile support. But I normally don't
need it because it's just a ZEO client. And I've been trying to get python
to compile with largefile support and I can't. I'm using Debian woody (and
no, I don't want to use the installed python2.1 package).

Can someone tell me exactly how to compile python 2.1.3 with LFS support?

Yeah, that's a bad thing. I'm glad this wasn't my only copy (although
it takes 15 minutes to get a new copy since it's so large.)
