Perl - error: unknown type name 'off64_t'; did you mean 'off_t'?

while compiling perl (latest snapshot) i came across these errors that are making me unable to compile the entire package

this seems to be an issue related with musl after searching the web ... anyone came across this error ?

created issue

reverted back to gcc12.2 as a workaround until issues with the gcc are resolved (noticed xtables-addons also failing)

just a quick update solution was to upgrade to musl2.4 (see issue) and have on the makefile for perl a CFLAGS with LARGFILE64_SUPPORT
