They just updated to 4.2.10 today.  I don't normally like to use the
alpha versions of packages but I do need to get a new version out which
understands 64 bit file sizes and this version fixes the 'tempfile'
problem in updatedb.

I've packaged this up and uploaded it to sourceware.org.  A new version
should be on mirrors soon.
