Description of problem:
Perl reports a wrong Filesize when the File > 2 GB
perl -e '@s=stat("/path/to/large/file"); print "size = $s[7]\n"'

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  locate a File > 2 GB
2.  Type in
3.  perl -e '@s=stat("/path/to/large/file"); print "size = $s[7]\n"'

Actual Results:  nothing is reported... so Programms using this report a 
filesize 0.
I actually deleted a file thinking it is empty

Expected Results:  Giving me the right Filesize

Perl in RHL 7.x doesn't support files larger than 2gb because of binary
compatibility issues.
