Both your kernel version and glibc _should_ support >2GB files. The
article does mention limitations of gcc, and switches to include lfs
support. Also, what file system are you using? Smbfs, fat and nfs all
have issues with lfs that ext doesn't.
I'm not too sure what else it could be, as large TAR archives work fine
for me with a home cooked kernel and sarge/sid.
