Firebird supports 64-bit i/o out of the box under Windows and Mac OS X. We can
build it for Linux although it hasn't been tested yet. It is being rolled out
to the Solaris port, but isn't quite completed.

The reason for the patchiness of this is because it relies on the way the
underlying OS supports 64-bit file i/o.
