The FAQ in the distribution seems to be later than the FAQ on the web.
By the way, can any glibc experts explain the reasons why the changes
are needed? (It seems that the patch to fix libstc++/libc compatibility
mostly seems to just turn a lot of _IO_fpos_t types into _IO_off_t
types, and _IO_fpos64_t into _IO_off64_t).
