ppport.h and Perl 5.005_03
Message ID:
While working on my next release of the version module, I attempted to backport 
the changes from bleadperl to the CPAN compatibility release, and I thought I 
would try and use ppport.h instead of my own collection of #ifdef's.  I 
discovered that IVdf was not being defined properly, even though it _was_ there 
in ppport.h!

I had to make the following patch:

--- ppport.h    (revision 163)
+++ ppport.h    (working copy)
@@ -249,6 +249,10 @@
  #    define aTHX_

+#ifndef IVSIZE
+#   define IVSIZE INTSIZE
  #ifndef UVSIZE
  #   define UVSIZE IVSIZE

since it appears that (at least for my copy of 5.005_03), there is no IVSIZE 
defined, so all of the #define's based on IVSIZE fail to work properly.

Am I missing something obvious???  Is my Perl 5.005_03 defective???
