the 5.6.0+ uselargefile flags: -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
are still the source of many core dump reports.  i just committed a patch
to rip them out by default.  mod_perl does not need them.  but they can be
turned back on with Makefile.PL PERL_USELARGEFILES=1

i've tested with 5.6.0, 5.7.0-dev, USE_DSO=1, USE_APXS=1 and USE_APACI=1
all on linux 2.x.  it would be great to hear 'make test' reports with as
many perls/os-es/options/etc. to ensure no breakage for 1.25 sometime next
week.  thanks.
