neither had I until my backup script died on me.
I'm still trying to figure out *where* the fault really is (dump /usr |

for Windows ]). ( comments welcome on this :) no, can't get rid of
I found some references to gzip and >2 GB files:

But not a direct reference to gzip under freebsd.
It could also be an issue with NFS (v3 from the server, but I just
realised that amd may be default to v2 (which has a 2 GB limit...which
has never been a problem as I've pushed 3GB files on it before).
Running the script again with the gzip from ports. if it fails again
i'll see when I can remount this nfs share forcing v3
