The best way is to implement

"Entire JDK should be built with -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64"

but yes, another good way is to do as you suggest, have configure define
HAVE_XXXX for all known functions with a 64-bit variant and then put them
into a header file with proper ifdefs for platforms that don't have them.

You could also "simply" add
#define _FILE_OFFSET_BITS 64
but you have to do it for cliques of files that share ambiguously sized
data simultaneously.
