perlio working now better (the not-working in Digital UNIX was because
of the recent Configure stdio test unnecessarily producing warnings,
resulting in a confused test result).  You can Configure -Duseperlio,
and after that you set your environment variable PERLIO to values
"perlio" (use perlio) or "mmap" (use perlio+mmap).

How much would there be interest of getting all the applied patches
copied to perl5-porters?  (Now that we've seen the recent mailstorm...)
A special Subject line or a special header could be added so that
people not interested (what *are* you doing in here? :-) can filter
away the patches.

Changes since the last:
