intro(2) manpage has wrong description of EFBIG?

I was just reading the intro(2) manpage and saw the following description of
| 27 EFBIG File too large. The size of a file exceeded the maximum (about
| 2.1E9 bytes).
Which is 2 GB. As far as I know, FreeBSD is capable of dealing with files
larger than 2 GB.
Shouldn't this manpage be updated?
The same manpage on NetBSD 2.0 shows the following:
| 27 EFBIG File too large. The size of a file exceeded the maximum. (The
| system-wide maximum file size is 2**63 bytes. Each file system
| may impose a lower limit for files contained within it).
Which seems to be correct.
