It's all in the handbook, and is very good reading.

     Note: In order to support working files larger than 4.38GB, an 
UDF/ISO-9660 hybrid filesystem must be created by passing -udf 
-iso-level 3 to mkisofs(8) and all related programs, such as 
growisofs(1). This is required only when creating an ISO image file or 
when writing files directly to a disk. Since a disk created this way 
must be mounted as an UDF filesystem with mount_udf(8), it will be 
usable only on an UDF aware operating system. Otherwise it will look as 
if it contains corrupted files.

     To create this type of ISO file:

     % mkisofs -R -J -udf -iso-level 3 -o imagefile.iso /path/to/data

     To burn files directly to a disk:

     # growisofs -dvd-compat -udf -iso-level 3 -Z /dev/cd0 -J -R 

     When an ISO image already contains large files, no additional 
options are required for growisofs(1) to burn that image on a disk.

     Be sure to use an up-to-date version of sysutils/cdrtools, which 
contains mkisofs(8), as an older version may not contain large files 
support. If the latest version does not work, install 
sysutils/cdrtools-devel and read its mkisofs(8).
