Ok, good to know, and a warm welcome to the new maintainers! And I must
say a _big_, _big_ thank you to Junichi (cc'ed) for maintaining ecasound
in debian for so many years (Junichi was active on this list already in
1999, so he's been helping out since the beginning).

Then about configure script stuff:

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

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".
