Try "gpg < madrid-root.ufs.pgp > whatever" so that gpg will not have
to open the file.  For accessing large files in 32-bit programs,
Solaris has a proprietary set of function calls (open64, access64
etc.); I think it should work with I/O redirection because then
for gpg it's just like being used in a pipe.
