How did you split the distribution into 240k files?

Newer BSD based systems have a -b option to split that allows them to split files on arbitrary byte boundaries.

Here is an example from /usr/src/Makefile.

    bin-tarball:
    (cd ${DISTDIR}; \
    tar cf - . \
    gzip --no-name -9 -c | \
    split -b 240640 - \
    ${RELEASEDIR}/tarballs/bindist/bin_tgz.)
