I think this is fixed in later libg++, otherwise what needs to be done
is something like:

Please replace libio/config/ by the following:

# Flags to pass to gen-params when building _G_config.h.
# For example: G_CONFIG_ARGS = size_t="unsigned long"
# The NetBSD include files have a chain where fpos_t is defined as off_t,
# which is defined as quad_t, which is defined as int64_t, which is defined 
# as 'long long'.  Such a long chain is too much for gen-params.
G_CONFIG_ARGS = fpos_t="long long" off_t="long long"
