Probably you are using an operating system that
requires a special data type to look at larger
files. In util.c you will see:

   struct stat sbuf;

Likely as not, your OS requires 'struct stat' to be
'struct stat_64' or some such; "man stat" might tell
you the exact details. The replacement should probably
be made everywhere you see 'struct stat'. Note that
this will break the code for machines without the
extended file system convention.
