I tried building blead on FreeBSD 8.2 yesterday but failed due to a
problem I have bisected to:
(Increase PERLIOBUF_DEFAULT_BUFSIZ to larger of 8192 and BUFSIZ)

The problem manifests itself as the test t/io/eintr.t freezing after the
fifth test with the process in the "pipdwc" state.

If I explicitly set PERLIOBUF_DEFAULT_BUFSIZ to 4096 as described in the
commit message, this test passes and I can build perl successfully.

I'm happy to provide more information on request or run any commands
that might offer useful insight.
