You are out of luck.  Solaris filesystem (UFS) sucks to put it bluntly :-).
I also ported our search engine written in Perl to Solaris last year
because of the 2GB limit in Linux.  After spending a few months tuning,
tweaking, with the help of Sun engineers, we went back to Linux and wrote
our own Perl library to use more than 2GB.
