When you compile for 64-bit then it supports large files/offsets by 
default and so sendfilev and sendfilev64 are the same thing.  With 
32-bit apps then you have to use the transitional interfaces (xxx64). 
I've cleaned it up slightly to only use sendfilev64 as you suggested and 
this will compile to the same thing as before. The main overall change 
is to link against libsendfile rather than using dlopen to attempt to 
load libsendfile.
