This should be ok.

This is saying that in order to enable 64-bit addressable ("large")
files, there is no special compiler option, but setting
_FILE_OFFSET_BITS to 64 enables this functionality.

This then causes the build process to use the _FILE_OFFSET_BITS option
to enable support for large files.

You don't need to do this, the build/configure process has done it for you.

This is like saying I need to get to the library:
   checking if I have a car... no
   checking if I have a bicycle... yes

Wine understands and supports both methods and will use whichever one
is available to add that support, or disable the functionality if it

Does this make sense?
