If you need 64-bit file operations, select CONFIG_LFS=y

> Busybox would need to be compiled with e.g. _FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64, but then it would need to be 64-bit as well (likely) since off_t etc would change, and wouldn't fit in an int anymore.

Wrong. The binary does not need to be 64-bit. Code carefully uses off_t, not
ints, for file sizes everywhere.
