[patch] for Stratus VOS
Message ID:
This patch should apply to both blead and maint perls.  I've been testing it
on maintperl.

It updates the README.vos file, and it skips a test that is failing in
t/op/pack.t.  We aren't masking one of the obscure IEEE floating-point
exceptions and so are blowing up when the code in pp_pack.c attempts to
subtract two infinities.  I've entered a VOS bug (posix-1022) and we will
fix this at some point in the future.
