Thanks, I've applied your patch to the development version of perl as
change #23849.

Could you test whether the development version (currently self-known as
5.9.2) compiles and runs correctly on your platform ? Usually porting
efforts are focused on the developement version (bleadperl) before being
backported on the 5.8 maintainance branch. (the instructions to get
bleadperl are documented in perlhack.pod)

I've also bumped the version numbers of File::Temp and ExtUtils::MM_Unix
since these modules also exist on CPAN.
