It seems that, according to the open.pm docs, only these layers are
use open ':utf8';
use open ':locale';
use open ':encoding(iso-8859-7)';
use open ':std';
These two layers are pseudo layers which are only available when Perl
is built without perlio:
use open IN => ":crlf", OUT => ":bytes";

It works when not using the pragma, but as argument to open():
open OUTFILE, ">:crlf", "text.txt";
print OUTFILE "This is a test.\n";
