Do it with gentoo, dont bother with gentoox you would be doing more work than starting with gentoo

I`ve fixed the problem. I am putting in the 3 command lines:
export CPPFLAGS=-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
export CXXFLAGS=-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
export CFLAGS=-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64


and then i do "emerge apache" as an example, and it will be compiled with 64bits instead of 32 bits

and voila, there you got your LFS support for larger file than 2 gigabytes
