Large file support for libdca

Hello libdca developers,
I hope anyone is still listening?
Currently, a bug has been filed in the Debian Bug Tracker  about
dcadec failing to decode large files. The problem only occurs with
files larger than 2GB and only on i386 systems.
It was proposed to add
CFLAGS += -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
to the environment and rebuild the package and this has reportedly
fixed the issue.
Since DTS-encoded audio files larger than 2GB shouldn't be too
uncommon, I'd like to see this issue fixed in the Debian package, but
preferably also upstream. Do you think it is reasonable to add
-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 to CFLAGS per default? Or is there any drawback
that I couldn't see yet, e.g. ABI change or even worse?
That said, do you think it makes sense to fix the LFS issue discussed
here in SVN and then do something crazy like a new release? ;)
