This is a good idea, but to get a large poster there is no need to use
pdftex primitives and there is no need to insert raw PDF code by
\pdfliteral.

Just make a file "a0.tex":

\documentclass{article}
\setlength{\paperheight}{3368bp}
\setlength{\paperwidth}{2380bp}
\usepackage{pdfpages}
\begin{document}
\includepdf[pages=-]{poster.pdf}
\end{document}

And you can do much more with pdfpages.  Look at the documentation.

Regards,
Reinhard
