I was under the impression that, as Christian pointed out a week
ago, perl-5.8 is blocked per #164774, pending a new libdb4.0
upload with the Priority changed from "optional" to "standard".
There has been no such uplad yet though, and until then #16774
needs to be re-opened.
Last I see, Matthew is still claiming (as he has for several months)
that autoconf is broken -- though last communication (as of Oct 15)
on #164774 makes that sound like a bogus claim, and that his problems
are the result of using a non-packaged autoconf.
Any new libdb4.0 upload will also need to address its current
build breakage per #166620, which means inclusion of the thus
far ignored patch submitted in #160129.
