Ah, thanks for the correction/explanation...
I guess then that this is essentially a 32-bit filesystem limitation? Or
are you saying that you could still compile postfix like this even on a
32 bit system?
I'm also guessing that postfix running on a 64 bit system would normally
be compiled this way...?
