[GRASS-user] bigTIFF file input

Did you build gdal from source? When you compile gdal with internal libtiff
or with libtiff >= 4.0, GDAL should supports reading and writing BigTIFF
files (evolution of the TIFF format to support files larger than 4 GB).

You should also enable big file support when compiling grass I think, which
you can set with ./configure --enable-largefile

If you use the default gdal install, it might not support big files. This
is for example the case in Ubuntu (I think, didn't check with 12.04
though). In that case you might want to compile gdal from source.
