This error is coming from your OS.  Either the libraries you linked
rsync with do not handle large files, or the destination filesystem
does not support files that large.  I'd recommend first testing the
filesystem for large-file support (if you don't already know this).
If that is not the problem, you'll need to figure out why the 2.6.6
build didn't get compiled with large-file support for the functions
that it uses:  mkstemp() (or mktemp() if your OS didn't have a good
enough mkstemp() function), open(), and lseek() all need to be O.K.
