[gdal-dev] merging shapefiles larger than 4GB

Hi all,
      I am using ogr2ogr merge all my shapefiles into one large file. Its
failing with following error
ERROR 1: Failed to write shape object. File size cannot reach 4294967280 +
ERROR 1: Terminating translation prematurely after failed

I looked at shapefil.h its using unsigned int for filesize which would
restrict the filesize to 4GB.
Is there any easy way to increase the filesize it can address, compiling in
64bit doesn't help either.
I'll appreciate if you can give me any pointers on this issue .
