[ale] Copying VERY large files

Due to an error in a disk array I need to move a 4.6Gig file from one
server to another.  Actually a bunch of them.  CPIO blows out with a
"file too large" error and I think rsync is having the same problem even
though it's not giving the same error.

Anyone know a good way to copy the files between the 2 machines?
They're connected on a private network with Gig copper, nfs is
available.  Ideally I'd like to preserve ownership and permissions.

 perl -e 'print $i=pack(c5,(41*2),sqrt(7056),(unpack(c,H)-2),oct(115),10);'
