Problem copying >2GB files on HP-UX 11i with rsync 2.5.6

I have downloaded the source for rsync 2.5.6 and compiled it without
adjusting any options, no problems. Performed a test copy of a file GT 2 GB
and it failed. In the file configure I changed the line to
"--enable-largefile", removed all the .o files, performed a ./configure,
gmake, gmake install.  Tried the test copy and again received the following
error message:

rsync:  writefd_unbuffered failed to write 32768 bytes: phase "unknown":
Broken pipe
rsync error:  error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(515).

This is the line command I used for the test copy:

rsync -vurpoglt --progress --states  source-file  target-directory/

The system is an HP  RP8400 8x24 running HP-UX 11.11 patched to June 2003,
HP C/ANSI C Developer's Bundle, HP aC++ Compiler, and gcc-3.2.3 .

Look forward to your response. Thank you in advance.
