No problem, you did most of the work for us :-)

Please have a look at the branch I created for SSL keepalives, and let me
know if there's anything blocking it from inclusion:
svn diff -r 323:326 \
As far as I know, large files (>4Gb) are simply not supported by the MinGW
compiler using the standard C library functions. One has to replace them
with Windows-specific functions, and I haven't had time to do that yet.
Also, autoconf detects that large file support is not available (off_t
remains 4 bytes long), and I haven't figured out how to work around
