Uploaded perl 5.004.04-2 (source i386) to master


I've uploaded the latest maintenance release of Perl to master.  There
are two changes in this version of the Debian Perl package.
1. Due to an excellent suggestion by Scott Ellis <storm@stormcrow.ml.org>, 
   packages with Perl extensions (XS stuff) will no longer need to be
   re-packaged with every maintenance release.  If developers with those 
   packages (I've cc'ed you on this post) build with this Perl package,
   you won't need to do so again due to a new maintenance release.
2. There is now a perl-base essential, base package.  This is *not*
   replaced by perl, it is supplemented by perl now.  perl-5.004.04-1
   was a test release to make sure that I get this at least mostly
   correct.  Some problems were found and this is therefore

As always this is available at ftp://ftp.debian.org/pub/debian/perl* as

 perl (5.004.04-2) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Wonderful idea from Scott Ellis <storm@stormcrow.ml.org>, set archlib
     to be the major version so that maintenance versions don't break all
     the arch-dependent perl-debian packages.
   * Strip a2p, fixing Bug #14891.
   * Files copied by make.base should keep hard-links.
 perl (5.004.04-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream (maintenance) version
   * Turn off Perl 5.003 compatibility since this is the libc6
     version. (should've been done last version)
   * All tests finally pass now that locale test #102 was considered not
     important for Perl.
   * First attempt to get perl-base -really- working.  (As opposed to what
     I did in 5.003.07).
