Would it be possible for the gdbm ebuild allow for a 64bit size off_t
The reason is that as it stands now, gdbm-1.8.3-r3 on 32bit machines can
only work with data base files of about 2 GB since off_t is 4 bytes. If
gdbm is built with off_t size equal to 8 bytes, it will handle much
larger database files.
It would be helpful if there were a USE 64bit option for emerging gdbm.
PS: I am willing to help if needed. However I have not written an ebuild
