Sorry -- I mistyped that.  The line really says "#!/usr/bin/perl --".

My theory is the problem lies in changes to fs/binfmt_script.c.  Every
script with extra stuff after the interpreter filename now fails with
something like "bash: no such file" (I don't remember exactly -- I'm
back to 2.0.25 now).
I was going to test the theory by replacing binfmt_script.c with the
2.0.25 version, but make-kpkg didn't work under 2.1.13, and by the
time I re-liloed and booted the stable kernel, the heat of the moment
had passed....   :-)
