Yeah, or I can bite the bullet and just proceed with replacing
fopen/fread/fseek/fclose with open/read/lseek/close...

I did that now and committed. This should make most systems able to seek with
one single seek, and only strange systems on which lseek() seeks 32bit while
curl_off_t is 64bit need multiple seeks. I'm actually not even sure these
systems exist, since the only one I know of is Windows and I made the code do
an exception for that.

I committed my code now so the curl tool uses SEEKFUNCTION.
