I'm not aware of a port.

The vsize and nsize limits would take some surgery to fix, but they
already allow 2Gb of heap and 2Gb of cons cells, which is quite a lot.

I would like R to be able to use large memory, since it's becoming more
widely available, but quite a few changes are probably needed.

What size are int, long and pointer types on os390?
