[GRASS-user] Large vector files

Hmm, I am using the binaries from
http://www.kyngchaos.com/software/unixport/grass/ --> assuming LFS was
enabled (I can always recompile if I need to), are there large file issues
with *vectors* I need to worry about?  The raster LFS is fine, mind you --
I'm very happy with that.  I'm just a bit fed up with ArcMap's 2gb
limitation on file sizes, and I'm wondering if GRASS has ESRI beat in vector
LFS along with the raster LFS...
