The child process is literally doing nothing but calling POSIX::_exit. I find it hard to believe that the problem is that a slow machine takes more than 30 seconds to process that. I think it's more likely there's another problem here.

  my $pid = fork();
  if (! defined $pid) {
    die "oops, cannot fork: $!";
  }
  if ($pid == 0) {
    # child
    require POSIX;
    POSIX::_exit(42); # no END etc cleanups
  }
