Rdiff-backup might work for this since it stores deltas.   Are you
doing something to snapshot the filesystem during the copy or are
these just growing logs where consistency doesn't matter?

I'd probably look at freebsd with zfs on a machine with a boatload of
ram if I needed dedup in the filesystem right now.   Or put together
some scripts that would copyand split the large files to chunks in a
directory and let backuppc take it from there.
