man 2 open
(LFS) Allow files whose sizes cannot be represented in an off_t
(but can be represented in an off64_t) to be opened.
In this case LFS stands for Large File Support. Doing some Googling, it
looks like the limit is 2G without Large File Support.
I've always used a standalone /boot partition of 100M or so and haven't
run into this before. If omitting --disable-largefile fixes the problem
for you, then I'll update the book.
