You only need to run this generator program where's byteorder string
is not the same length as the size of IVs.

This length difference should only happen on perl 5.6.x configured with IVs as
long long on Unix, OS/2 or any platform that runs the Configure stript (ie not
MS Windows)

This is perl $], sizeof(long) is $Config{longsize}, IVs are '$ivtype', sizeof(IV) is $ivsize,
byteorder is '$Config{byteorder}', Storable $Storable::VERSION writes a byteorder of '$storebyteorder'
  exit; # Grr '
