in reply to largefile support
I don't mean to sound condescending at all here, so please don't take it as such. Are you sure the Solaris machine you are running can support > 2gb files? I know in general Solaris can support files over that size, but I ran into an old machine running Solaris 2.6, which have absolutely no knowledge of the installation procedures used, and it could only support files up to 2gb. If you haven't, I'd suggest doing a simple 'dd' test to check for certain what the max file size is. Nothing but the kernel should ever have to know what this number is. All compilers and interpreters just use the underlying kernel methods for reading and writing to files, so it really shouldn't affect anything (unless something weird were done, like bringing over the binary from somewhere else).
