For an example of this for libWebCore.a and ar see bugzilla 206679 .
Quoting part of comment 2:

I would have guessed that the file format has some 4GB limit that might have
been reached, explaining why the terminology reads like a file truncation
instead of out-of-memory.
Looking around some I found one 2012 reference to code in ar that was reported
to then look like:
/* Catch an attempt to grow an archive past its 4Gb limit. */
if (archive_member_file_ptr != (file_ptr) offset)
