While forking the whole perl subsection of the distro is a bit
drastic, I am quite happy to have a perl in C5Plus. Does someone want
to get in touch with Keith and get a summary on what needs fixing in
this case ? Also - if the conversation was to take place on
centos-devel list, would be much cooler.

Upstream have said the fix will be in 5U3, and considering that might
be still a few months away, could we get something sorted before then

( questions, since I dont use perl myself )

There was an additional post to the same SL M/L thread which has a
link relevant to fixing the broken RH perl.
