Yes, this does solve gdbm's problem. I tried the newly emerged gdbm and
was able to create large data bases beyond the ~2GB file size limit. I
generated 3.1GB databases and twice as large.
Will the ebuild change be a part of future ebuild versions?
I have exchanged e-mails with the gdbm maintainer and he said databases
written with 32bit off_t will not be read/modified by gdbm when compiled
with 64bit off_t.
