My advice: You usually do NOT want to compile with -pedantic. That
option exists for programs that are sticking _strictly_ to the C
standard, but lseek() and off_t are not part of the C standard. There
is no portable way to be pedantic to the C89 standard and simultaneously
use 64-bit offsets. The situation is better in C99, since that
introduced 64-bit types.
If you want to use %lld, you have to use C99, not C89; use gcc -std=c99
or gcc -std=gnu99. By omitting -std, you got gcc's default, which for
now is still -std=c89.

You can't. So drop the -pedantic.
