At long last I have been able to fix this.  The polymake maintainers,
based on their experience with some unspecified Linux distributions,
not including Fedora but including Ubuntu, assumed that all 32-bit
perl builds include 64-bit native integers.  However, Fedora's perl is
configured so that 32-bit perl has only 32-bit native integers.  The
polymake maintainers expressed great surprise that Fedora is so
backward that we haven't heard about 64-bit native integers in 32-bit
perl yet.  Nonetheless, once the problem was identified, they helped
me fix it and promised to add a test for this problem to their test
suite to prevent its reappearance.
