Probably not you. But anyway who can guarantee that a mixed system
consisting of a mere hodge podge of bo and hamm behaves ok either?  I
at least can state based on my very own experience that perl-5.004
behaves quite well on two heavily used bo systems here since more than
6 weeks.  And i'm not speaking about my private home machine.  Guess
why i proposed to name a directory with libc5 compiled hamm packages
