Bug#426426: SetEnv PERL5LIB ... cleaned by suEXEC

Package: apache2
Version: 2.2.3-4
Severity: wishlist

I was recently burned by the fact suEXEC removes PERL5LIB from
processes' environment: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/suexec.html

directory. This works without suEXEC, but broke when I enabled suEXEC.

Assuming it is unreasonable to add PERL5LIB to the suEXEC safe
environment list (is it unreasonable?) could we please add a note in the

Thanks, Jack
