Large file support?

From: Dominic Anello <danello_at_danky.com>

All the talk on the dev list re file size offset mismatches in the perl
bindings has started me thinking on how my own repository is going to
start behaving when it gets up over 2GB. Currently my db/strings file
is at 200MB, but is growing by about 5MB per day.

Does anyone know how I can tell if I have the necessary large file
support for my repo to exceed 2GB (on linux with access via
mod_dav_svn).

My guess is that the following items would have to support large files:
kernel
fs module
apr
bdb
Apache
svn and it's libraries (mod_dav_svn, etc)
bash (svnadmin load < large_file)

Am I on the right track? And if so, how would I confirm that the entire
tool chain supports large repos? I suppose I could create a dummy repo
and check in 2GB+ worth of dummy data into it...

Thanks,

Dominic
