Well, it only happens with this unreleased branch so I don't think it
should go in the BTS quite yet.
Normally @INC only changes with SONAME changes (libperl.so.5.14 ->
libperl.so.5.16) so this is generally not a problem.
In this particular case, I thought I could get away without changing the
SONAME. I still think I might, as the @INC change (/usr/lib/perl/5.14 ->
/usr/lib/<triplet>/perl/5.14) is only internal to perl-base. But we'll
see what needs to happen with /usr/lib/perl5 and how it affects this.
If there's no SONAME change, possibly a build-conflict with
hardening-wrapper is indeed the least bad solution. We support
dpkg-buildflags, and I'm not sure how much more value hardening-wrapper
Anyway, I suspect there are worse bugs than this one hiding there :)
