AIX rpmbuild on large package

I'm using IBM's compiled version of RPM on AIX 7 and am attempting to 
package a ~30GB set of files (uncompressed).

When rpmbuild gets to the "Processing files:" stage it craps out with the following 
type of message:

Processing files: foo-1.0-1.ppc
warning: Recognition of file "/foo/bar/" failed: mode 100755 cannot 
allocate zu bytes (Invalid argument)

Smaller packages can be built just fine. I've doubled the ulimit on files open, 
memory, etc. but it fails on the same file on a rebuild.

Any ideas?
