 attempted fix in [42343].

 The new header boost/iostreams/detail/config/rtl.hpp attempts to set the
 preprocessor symbols BOOST_IOSTREAMS_FD_XXX to correct values for XXX =
 open, close, read, write, seek, truncate, stat, and offset. The
 implementation of file_descriptor uses these constants where possible
 instead of using platform specific functions or types.

 A new test, large_file_test.cpp, was introduced to test seeking with
 offsets of 1GB to 8GB. In order to enable this test, regression test
 runners will have to set one of the variables LARGE_FILE_TEMP or
 LARGE_FILE_KEEP to a pathname where the iostreams library can create an
 8GB file.
