Uploaded perl 5.004.04-6 (source i386) to master


I've uploaded the following to master.debian.org.  This fixes the
/tmp/*$$ exploit problem in the scripts and in using -e.  The script
patches were posted to p5p and the only comment garnered was that the
use of POSIX::tmpnam() weren't sufficiently protected against bad POSIX
systems.  (Linux is not one of these.)  The -e fix was posted by Tim
Bunce, the current Perl maintenance track Pumpking.  All the other
changes are simple build fixes or doc changes.

As always, these files are available at

 perl (5.004.04-6) frozen unstable; urgency=low
   * Fix symlinks for perl-suid and perl-debug doc directories.  (Fixes Bug
   * Make sure that *all* files are readable.  (Fixes Bug #20791)
   * Make changes to c2ph.PL (includes pstruct), perldoc, and s2p so that
     they try to use POSIX::tmpnam() in creating temp files.  Note that
     perlbug already checks for the existence of the temp file before
     creating it.  (Fixes Bug #19805)
   * Apply patch from next maintenance release so that -e scripts are kept
     in memory rather than written to a temporary file.
   * Fix typo in perlop(1p).  Thanks to Richard Braakman <dark@xs4all.nl>
     for pointing this out.  (Fixes Bug #22488)
   * Add /usr/doc/perl/perlfaq-is-free to explain Tom Christiansen's intent
     with his perlfaq copyright.  (Closes Bugs #10286, #22705)
   * Fix typos in postrm scripts.  Thanks to Mark Eichin <eichin@arepa.com>
     for this.  (Fixes Bug #23107)
