big file support - howto?

Recently I have used partimage to backup a big FAT32 partition.
This resulted in an imagefile > 2GB. (Never do that!)
Now some commands fail on such a file, like
- partimage but with the same error message as
- file
- gunzip -t

Has anybody experience which packages can and should be recompiled
with 'big file support' ?

Thanks for hint,
