Even in Linux architectures (amd64 and armhf for example) Perl advertises -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE as a necessary compiler flag: $ perl -MExtUtils::Embed -e ccopts -D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE -DDEBIAN -fwrapv -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -I/usr/local/include -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.20/CORE According to feature_test_macros(7) it should not be necessary and is now discouraged; but it reads like _LARGEFILE_SOURCE should be defined by default anyway. Maybe that is the issue we have on kfreebsd-i386. Regards, -- Steven Chamberlain ste...@pyro.eu.org
