It certainly looks that way.

It's basically a case of examining anything which uses lseek(),
fseek() or ftell(), converting fseek/ftell to G_fseek/G_ftell
respectively, and ensuring that offsets are calculated and stored
using off_t.

I *think* that I fixed all of the lseek() cases some time ago, but I
didn't touch the fseek/ftell cases (we didn't have G_fseek/G_ftell at
that time).
