I doubt any OS has a limit like that. What can have a limit is 32-bit
integers for file size. Typically if your SVN is compiled with APR
1.x then it supports files > 2 GB and if it is compiled with APR 0.9.x
then it does not.

I do not think this would be your problem anyway. The dump file is
streamed into svnadmin, so it does not see it as a 9GB file anyway.
And for the repository itself, it would only manifest as a problem if
you had a single revision that was 2 GB. Given that it is a dump
file, perhaps if a single file in the dump file was 2 GB it could be a
problem since the size would too big for it to process.

Remember the limit is for a single file in the filesystem. For a
repository, that usually means the revision file, which means you
would need a revision this big. The entire repository could still
have a million revision that were 1.9 GB each and be fine.
