           Summary: perl is compiled without 64bit int on i386
           Product: Fedora Core

          Platform: i386

Description of problem:
perl is compiled without 64bit int on i386

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install perl
2. perl -e 'printf ("%x", 99999999999999)'

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
>From the INSTALL manual:
"The use64bitint option does only as much as is required to get 64-bit integers
into Perl (this may mean, for example, using "long longs") while your memory may
still be limited to 2 gigabytes (because your pointers could still be 32-bit).
Note that the name 64bitint does not imply that your C compiler will be using
64-bit ints (it might, but it doesn't have to). The use64bitint simply means
that you will be able to have 64 bit-wide scalar values."


At least I need 64bit ints for some internal applications that needs to run on
both x86_64 and i386.
