Description of problem:
perl 5.6.1 include in redhat 8 doesn't fully support >2g files
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version : 5.6.1
Release : 26.72.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a file larger than 2 gig. (dd if=/dev/zero of=test.file bs=1024
2.perl -e 'print -M test.file' (This should print the size of the file. It
works if test.file is smaller than 2 gig)
The value returned by -M is undefined.
-M should return the size of the file, and does if the file is smaller than 2
Red Hat 8 ships with perl 5.8.0, not perl 5.6.1. Perl 5.8.0 in RH 8 does
support large files.
