Of course I understand LFS.  I don't understand what you think is wrong nor
what you think you are fixing.  Those are what need to precede any patch.

-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 might be intractable for strace.  It needs to decode
the 32-bit struct stat et al formats in the syscalls that use them.  In the
case of stat, I guess it's a different kernel struct declaration for Linux
anyway.  But I'm not sure that is true of all the LFS-affected types.

You need to explain what you are attempting to gain from using
