[PLUG] Transfer REALLY large file(s) between Linux and OS X

I'm trying to move a 28G file from Linux to OS X. Transmit fails after
4G. scp fails after about the same. I'm trying to avoid cutting it up -
I already tried to make on 5.6G file - but that fails too (no surprise).
Unless I can take my 28G tarball and slice it into 7 4G pieces and
reassemble then on the other side. It just really bother me that it's
bombing at 4G. I assume because the file is being cached in RAM. Anyway
to force scp to incrementally write the file to disk?
