Running CVS 1.11.22 on Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX

The following command works on all platforms except AIX:

> cvs-1.11.22-AIX.bin -q update -P -d

cvs-1.11.22-AIX.bin [update aborted]: out of memory; can not allocate 414601216 bytes

The file in question is a particularly large binary file (-kb) but according to the ulimit's below on AIX, I don't understand why I would get that error.

> ulimit -d


> ulimit -f


> ulimit -a

time(seconds)        unlimited
file(blocks)         unlimited
data(kbytes)         unlimited
stack(kbytes)        65536
memory(kbytes)       unlimited
coredump(blocks)     unlimited
nofiles(descriptors) 2000
threads(per process) unlimited
processes(per user)  unlimited

What do I need to do to resolve this so I don't get this "out of memory" error on AIX?
