True, but you then sacrifice freedom; by the strict letter of the EULA,
AIUI, you cannot redistribute MSVCR80.DLL, (unless you have a paid-for VS 
licence), so if you distribute your application, users may have to go 
look for it, as a separate download from Microsoft.

Thanks for that.  Presumably it does have _telli64 and _lseeki64, (which 
I believe have been present since Win95/WinNT3), so we could easily add 
an inline _ftelli64 emulation in <io.h>, so it could appear that it is 
available, without requiring non-free MSVCR80.DLL.
