The problem on mips was a bug in glibc, that was fixed in glibc 2.3.2-8, 
so the next time it is tried perl should build on mips.

AFAIK the build failure on m68k was a kernel bug, but my memories might 
be wrong.

I haven't looked into the patch in #220486, but it's also possible that
it's RC and it should even be backported to stable.

But that's the decision of the perl maintainer and the security team.
