large binary file support in CVS

I wanted to know if there is a limit for binary file size in CVS.


We have a need to store and version Video Clips of up to 40 Gig in size.  I have tried pushing these through CVS but get errors:


cvs import bigfiletest release import

N bigfiletest/4Gigger.iso

cvs import: cannot lstat file 4Gigger.iso: Value too large for defined data type




Or if I try to add the file to an existing module:


$ ls -lh

total 29G
