Description of problem:
Rdist fails to copy files over 2G.
A message "LOCAL ERROR: <filename>: lstat failed: Value too large for defined
data type" is issued
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.issue an 'rdist -c' command for a file which is larger than 2G
Actual Results: File not copied
Expected Results: File should be copied
Both machines are running redhat 7.3 and the latest version of rdist (Version
6.1.5 (RELEASE) - Protocol Version 6, Release 6.1, Patch level 5).
I've been looking into it lately and it's unfortunately not as simple as just
'activating' LFS support for the usual syscalls.
Will be looking further into it.

OK, took me the last couple of days to make it work as it was as i
suspected a bug in the code that prevented it from just working.
A Rawhide version will be out in the next few days that fixes this
problem among a few other things.
