If you had a compiler, then doing the following would
help us eliminate already handled issues:

  wget http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/coreutils/coreutils-8.6.tar.gz
  gzip -dc coreutils-8.6.tar.gz | tar -x
  cd coreutils-8.6
  ./configure --quiet && make
  strace -e nanosleep src/sleep 9999999999

If not then an strace of the existing binary would help

  strace -e nanosleep sleep 9999999999

I tried the command on 32 bit FC5 (coreutils-5.97, kernel-2.6.17) without issue.
