cURL 7.19.7 v. VMS

      Today's changes:

   Better handling of large-file support.

   New builder options. Fixed a DCL line-too-long problem.

   Moved the HAVE_STRICMP inside the HEADER_CONFIG_VMS_H guard.

   The old large-file test in "include/curl/curlbuild.h"
("if defined(__alpha) || defined(__ia64)") was defective. Large-file
support is _available_ on Alpha and IA64 on VMS V7.2 or later (although
some C run-time ECOs may be needed until about V7.3-1), but it depends
on the macro _LARGEFILE being defined, not merely on the system
architecture. The revised code should get all the off_t-related things
to agree with reality, and the user-specified LARGE option in the new
builder should get _LARGEFILE set on request. It seems to work better.
