Try splitting by line count instead of size:
  -l, --lines=NUMBER
    put NUMBER lines per output file

pg_dump | split -l 32000

You'll have to experiment to find how many lines will give you a roughly
appropriate size for your purposes.

Alternatively, another option is to get an USB external HDD (I picked up a
Seagate 120gb 2.5" one recently for AU$135) and dump your data to that, then
take that to the new server. Any recent 2.6 kernel shouldn't have any issues
mounting it (especially formatted as ext2/3 or jfs/xfs etc)
