What version of GNU sort are you using?  You can find this using the
sort --version output.

  sort --version

Your compilation of GNU sort on your platform was apparently compiled
without large file support.  This was common with older versions.  On
older versions compiled on HP-UX large file support needed to be
forced at configured time.  This leads me to believe you are using a
very old version.

The current stable version is 5.94.  I am sure your problem is
resolved in the current version.
