has a couple million records, but more importantly it's about 40 gigs in size.  I have tried
many times to optimize it and this always results in hitting the Linux file size limit.  Is
there  a way to get around this?  I have the merge factor and max merge docs set, but the
optimization process seems to ignore those fields.  

On Redhat 8.0 I have built indexes whose total size is 49GB and whose 
largest file (the .prx) is 28GB.  I haven't yet tried to build anything 
larger, so I don't know exactly where the limit is.
