I have installed your new set of RedHat7.1 RPMs, and tried to build Perl
natively.
But it fails with the following message:

`sh  cflags libperl.a toke.o`  toke.c
          CCCMD =  gcc -DPERL_CORE -c -fno-strict-aliasing
-I/usr/local/include
-O2

Cannot allocate 2676168 bytes after allocating 3899765696 bytes
make: *** [toke.o] Error 1
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.43439 (%build)

RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.43439 (%build)


I have build perl natively with your pervious set of RedHat7.1 RPMs,
without any problems.
