sbcl is compiled without :largefile, which makes file-length report wrong file sizes.

The error can be reproduced with
file-length returns 0, but should return 4294967296.

*features* returns the following list:

:largefile seemed to be dropped here:

Steps to reproduce:

This shell script creates a file with size 2^32 and then uses sbcl and file-length to determine the file size, which prints 0.

Iam myself new to lisp and when i found out that file-length returns wrong sizes I asked about it on #lisp, they then basically tracked the error down to the missing :largefile feature on the packaged sbcl and told me that i should file a bug here.
This task depends upon

The reason for disabled LFS support was

r51641 | juergen | 2009-09-10 13:36:13 +0200 (Do, 10. Sep 2009) | 1 Zeile
disable largefile support (fails to build on i686)

I will check out, if this is still the case.
