are the people at perl aware of the propolice bug? i can't find it in
their bug ticket search ... as for the other changes, i'm skimming
their changelog, and i've only seen a couple of security fixes (in
sudoperl) directly listed, a lot of win32 changes (useless for LFS,
but important to many others) ... and a single change that directly
references uClibc ...

so which would be more secure? the disabling cflags route or the older
perl version? ... also, where does it (5.8.7) break? i'm almost there
in tonight's build, i may just find out for myself on the breakage ...
but which do you guys want me to play with then report on?
