Pushing perl 5.8.4-2.2 into testing.
Afaict the NMU to make perl autobuildable was successful and I think
it should be pushed into testing (perhaps not immediately, but I'd
rather note it now than forget it).
Problem: The perl as shipped in the 5.8.4-2 source-package will not
build on arm, ia64 and hppa.
Build report for 5.8.4-2.2:
* autobuilt on: alpha, hppa, ia64, m68k, mips, powerpc, s390, sparc
* manually built (for the initial upload) on i386 and arm.
* The mipsel autobuild failed with a number of test-failures, perhaps
caused by a broken /etc/services, a manual build with pbuilder worked
I am 98% confident that the mipsel autobuild failure was caused by
buildd breakage, there were no changes in the source-package affecting
mips. (e.g. I cannot have broken building with -rsudo, as mips is
using sudo, too and did not have any problems.)
Interdiff in http://bugs.debian.org/270410 but I guess you'll run
interdiff yourself anyway. ;-)
