This is something listed in the todo list upstream. For this reason, I
will create an internal feature request for this bug.

Try rebuilding the version from rawhide:

* Mon Jun 21 2004 Lon Hohberger <lhh@redhat.com> 2.3-24

- Extend max file/archive size to 2^32-8193 (4294959103) bytes
- Include better debugging output for configure script
