Yes, but perl-5.005-base doesn't include any of the AutoLoader'd
functions (.../POSIX/*.al).  So either file a bug against
perl-5.005-base or find another method to do what you need; a small C
program perhaps?

FWIW, adding all the POSIX/*.al files would add 233k to the *unpacked*
size of the boot-floopy image.
