It's been brought to my attention that no-one has replied to your message.
Whilst it is not good that perl5-porters is failing to reply to messages
and bug reports in anywhere near a timely fashion, I'm not sure how to
resolve this, given everyone on the list is volunteering their time, and
we don't have a huge supply of volunteers.

You make no comment in your message (or in the patched code) about what this
patch changes. Specifically, without this patch, what fails to work, and why?

I take it from the subject that it allows the enabling of PerlIO
and USE_LARGE_FILES for bcc55, which from the pre-processor macros I assume is
Borland's C compiler. Does that mean that as is perl 5.8.1 will only compile
on this compiler with both large files and PERLIO disabled? If you attempt to
enable either, what goes wrong? Compile fails? Link fails? Many tests fail?
