I suggest to use 6.1-CVS (not 6.0.1) for LFS which contains tests for LFS
in 'configure' and also a flag to enable it:

./configure --help | grep LFS
  --enable-largefile      enable support for large files (LFS)

The INSTALL file in the 6.1-CVS source code contains a section:

  (J) LARGE FILE SUPPORT (for raster maps)

which may be helpful.
