Adjust the instructions for building large file support so that it works
more cleanly (I think this supports more Linux systems; not sure).
Barry Warsaw & Martin von Loewis actually agree on this!
This closes SF patch #502023.

 of Irix, but with Solaris 2.6 and 2.7 you need to do something like:
-CFLAGS="`getconf LFS_CFLAGS`" OPT="-g -O2 $CFLAGS" \
-        ./configure
-\end{verbatim} % $ <-- bow to font-lock
+CC="cc `getconf LFS_CFLAGS`" ./configure
 On large-file-capable Linux systems, this might work:
-        ./configure
-\end{verbatim} % $ <-- bow to font-lock
+CC='gcc -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64' ./configure
