Back in 2008, (and commit 3f3d6eb) we changed the logic in how we
determine the native type for
curl_off_t. To really make sure we
didn't break ABI without bumping SONAME, we introduced logic that
attempted to detect that it would use a different size and thus not be
compatible. We also provided a manual switch that allowed users to tell
configure to bump SONAME by force.
Today, we know of no one who ever got a SONAME bump auto-detected and we
don't know of anyone who's using the manual bump feature. The auto-
detection is also no longer working since we introduced defining
curl_off_t in system.h (7.55.0).
Finally, this bumping logic is not present in the cmake build.
