Why?  CVS is intended to be a *source* control system, not a general
purpose configuration management system.

That said, CVS 1.11 does not have large file support; you'll have to
upgrade to CVS 1.12 to get it.  Once you do, you'll likely have problems
mmaping such a large file, so you'll either have to disable mmap by
manually editing the config.h file after running configure or get the
current development version of 1.12 which automatically switches to
using normal I/O when mmap fails.
