The problem is that gcc 2.x doesn't understand the "#pragma redefine_extname" 
statements which are used to redefine the *64 function names, so a simple 
"#define" is used as a fallback. The latter breaks because some Qt methods 
(e.g. truncate) get redefined by the preprocessor as well...

AFAIK, recent gcc versions (3.x) can handle these "#pragma" statements 
correctly but for gcc 2.x, disabling the large file support in 
kdenetwork/kdepim (as you did) seems to be the only option...
