I don't think that the number of files is a problem since the base system
is in a tar.gz archive AFAIK.
Otherwise for the internationalization you only need setlocale and the
associated constants :
locale_h => [qw(LC_ALL LC_COLLATE LC_CTYPE LC_MONETARY LC_NUMERIC
LC_TIME NULL localeconv setlocale)],
setlocale does not have his own .al file ...
[ nothing to do with POSIX.pm ]
Otherwise there are two more bugs I corrected but you lost when merging
(it's my fault I should have more documented what i've done) :
Both perl postinsts have a bad update-alternatives with
/usr/man/perl-=version=.1p.gz instead of /usr/man/MAN1/perl-=version=.1p.gz :
update-alternatives --install /usr/man/man1/perl.1p.gz perl.1p.gz
And also for the call to Configure in the rules files I changed
which works better since there is no /usr/bin/perl5.00X :)
