off_t is not "basic functionality" as far as ANSI C is concerned.

The last time this came up, I believe you wanted int to be 64 bits and
long 32, which if implemented according to the standard (allowed, but
the 64 bit int would only be allowed to have the same range of
representable values as the 32 bit int) would be useless.
If you want to make all sorts of drastic changes to the OS (removing
wildcard expansion from the shell, removing ioctl(), etc), maybe you
should be looking for a different OS?
