First of all: File too large means that filesystem doesn't support such
long files. You can't do anything with it.
For you information, ISO filesystem doesn't support > 2Gb files too.
Of course, split and cat utilities will work both in FreeBSD and any
sort of Linux.
You even can cat and ungzip files under Windows (in Cygwin enviroment).
