I'm working with a fairly massive data set and I need to allocate memory
beyond the 2GB limit. I'm using R 1.5.0 on a SunOS 5.8 machine (16 GB RAM).
Has anyone been succesful at patching the code to get rid of the 2GB memory
limit? (there are quite a few places in which vsize is an int or tested
against INT_MAX). I'll appreciate any guidance you can provide. Thanks.

Felix Hernandez.
