The intention was to provide CMake for Windows and let the other
systems that can deal with it use the configure script, that's why you
see problems like this.

In this particular case, I think autoconf is smart enough to test for
various #defines that might be necessary to get proper large file
support (see --enable-largefile). I think it tries _FILE_OFFSET_BITS
and _LARGE_FILES. I guess one or both might be needed on CentOS?

If you are interested in this, perhaps you can come up with a patch
for the cmake files that checks for these as well?
