Subject: gdbm ebuild with 64bit off_t
Date: Tue, 22 Jan 2008 21:59:23 -0500
Hello,

Would it be possible for the gdbm ebuild allow for a 64bit size off_t
option?

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.

Thanks,

PS: I am willing to help if needed. However I have not written an ebuild
file before.
