How to split zip files into parts when creating a [Linux]

There is a large folder (obviously larger than 2GB that is the limit for the size of zip-archive on the BOM). They need to be backed up, and creating a multivolume archive (the size of the parts for 500MB, for example).
All man zip read — anything similar did not see. zipsplit splits apart a ready-made archive (but I can't create a >2GB, then to break).
Other archive formats are not suitable for many reasons.
There is a solution to this problem?
If it is important, debian lenny.
Thank you.

Try 7-zip (p7zip package, there is an option -vXXm just splitting on a multi-volume, but only for your own 7z format(!), zip this feature is not supported, undone it there).
One of the advantages of a very rich functionality and multiplatform, so it might be suitable, see man 7zr
