Well, we are using the APR included in the subversion distribution,
which is 0.9.5

In the apr CHANGES file I found the following item:

  *) Remove apr_file_copy()'s 2Gb file size limit on some platforms.

Apparently the fix doesn't work on Solaris platforms. This seems odd to
me, Solaris has been a stable 64-bit operating system for a long time
and shouldn't have any problem to handle large files.

I found in the CHANGES file of subversion a note about "added support
for any apr/apr-util 1.X". Does anyone know if the latest version (apr
1.1.0) solves this problem on Solaris? I assume there is a reason why
the apr version 0.9.5 and not the apr 1.1.0 is bundled with the
subversion source distribution. Do you recommend downloading apr 1.1.0
and use that instead?
