Sure, they are now at

Apart from the /usr/lib/perl5 thing, there's a separate class of problems
that I see I failed to mention: libperl.so has moved to from /usr/lib to
/usr/lib/<triplet>, so configure scripts and the like are failing to
find it. (These are probably not strictly blockers for a Perl 5.20 transition,
as the change could be backed out if absolutely necessary.)
