Description David Vos 2001-08-30 10:13:26 EDT
Description of Problem:

In the perl.spec file included with perl-5.6.0-12.src.rpm, there is a typo
in the %build section.

Currently, the "-Uuselargefiles" is being passed to Configure.
It should be "-Duselargefiles"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Result: The perl rpms included with Redhat 7.1 may not actually support
large files (I am unable to test that).

Comment 1 Chip Turner 2001-12-19 03:17:18 EST
The large files switch is set to "off" to be binary compatible with perl modules
compiled against 5.6.0 that shipped with 7.0, which did not ship with large file
support, either.  Changing this option breaks XS library compatibility.
