That is, patching programs to use open64() and the rest of that
nonsense is a nonstarter, hacking programs to compile with small off_t
and fail randomly on large files is a bad idea. That leaves patching
programs to avoid the procfs headers, which is probably not going to
be very possible/effective, or ignoring the problem.

I guess another option is to teach gcc fixincludes to patch up Sun's
mess, but that's not likely to be fun.
