Hi Derick,

I have tested your patch, but since this changes the ability to load
existing modules, there's a need to plan a transition and coordinate
it with the release team. It would probably also be good thing to
coordinate this either with other major distributions (so the LFS flag
is same everywhere) or move this logic directly to PHP upstream.

What do you (and other pkg-php maintainers) think? My guess would be
that best solution would be to move this to upstream, so it's
consistent even for local custom builds with _FILE_OFFSET_BITS == 64.
