If you files are all going this large I imagine you should look carefully at
what you do with inodes, block and cluster sizes 

However I just read the newfs man page and am intrigued to know what effect
the -g and -h options have....

     -g avgfilesize
             The expected average file size for the file system.

     -h avgfpdir
             The expected average number of files per directory on the file
