The lack of large file support is entirely an artifact of the fact that
the "lseek" listed on that page uses an int instead of an off_t. The
existence of special APIs for large file support on e.g. Linux and
Solaris is an artifact of the fact that OSes made before a certain time
period used a 32-bit type for off_t. A modern OS does not need any more
system calls for large file support, since you can simply discard the
non-large-file-supporting versions of those system calls.
