That is what I did.  In the perl5 config.h file at around line 1160
there is a call to define IEEEFP.  Commenting that line out fixed
the problem.  It still did not fix the speed.....(:+{{ about 12
hours for a gmake and perl compile on the MVII, and I have to do
that for each revision (1.2, 1.3.2, 1.4.3, and 1.5).  It will be
a long weekend.....
