[Gdal-dev] ogr2ogr on solaris 10: too large a file?

I have a approx. 3Gb GML file I'm trying to translate to shp and tab
format with ogr2ogr.  Is this too big for the 32-bit ogr2ogr
to handle?  Is enabling large files a matter of re-compilation
with certain switches enabled?  

Thanks for any advice.
