Support for largefiles >2GB

I am currently maintaining a repository for a client and there is
the need to store single files larger than 2 GB in the repository.
Doing a simple 'svn status' on a file not even currently in the
repository leads to the error
  svn: Can't read directory '.': Partial results are valid but
  processing is incomplete
A trace on 'svn status' leads to an 'lstat' returning errno #79
Subversion is hosted on Solaris 10 Sparc. There is a transitional
largefile API in Solaris [lf64(5)], however I don't know how to
enable it on subversion. Maybe someone has a hint for me?

Browsing the mailing list archive led me only to postings about
commit size restrictions, which might apply at a later point.

Best regards
