Configure: Drop Large File Support macro definitions

Brad King requested to merge brad.king/kwsys:drop-lfs into master

Historically we have defined macros like


in Configure.h to activate large file support in system headers. This requires consuming projects to include the header at the beginning of every translation unit in order to get the macros defined consistently.

Instead these macros should be defined by the build system on the compiler command line. Drop them from KWSys in favor of that approach. The macros are not needed as often as they once were anyway.
