He mentioned his input file was 3gb, so I assumed this was not the
problem :)  Under Solaris, if the filessytem has the "largefiles" flag
on it when you run "mount", files over 2gb are supported.  This is the
default, and if you don't want it, you have to explicitly disable it
with the "nolargefiles" flag in vfstab.
