Compiling with large file support

A few users have reported that their BIND dies with SIGXFSZ on
Linux/i386 systems due to oversized log or journal files.  In order to
address this issue, I'd like to compile BIND with large file support,
but the --enable-largefile option is not documented.  Is it known to
work and regularly test on Linux, or is this something that should not
be enabled in a pre-compiled BIND version?
