Well, until a better solution is in place, a simple javascript alert-box, although a bit crude, would be quite effective and fitting since the main task that the user is perfoming is being cancelled.
Pehaps, writing out the maximum upload size  would not be a bad idea either.
Something like this javascript/php :
alert('File too large.\nMaximum file size is <?= ini_get('upload_max_filesize')?> as dictated by the web server.');
