Perl 5.8 RC3 and BeOS - The Saga continues

[ #6359 ]
I futzed around with Perl 5.8 RC3 last night, trying to see if I could work out some of the problems with the failed tests. I decided to focus on issue relating to file sizes over 2 gb (32 bit). Since BeOS is a 64 bit OS, it shouldn't be a problem.

One thing I learned from chatting with a BeOS programmer was that sqrtl() is defined in the PPC version, but *not* the Intel version. I have no idea why they would have left this out. However, plain old "sqrt(double(var))" should work fine. I need to pass that on to Jarkko

I also learned that the Perl debugger just doesn't work in BeOS. In fact, if you try it, you'll lose control of your terminal. Good thing I have Process Controller. :)
