A new perl 5.18 version brings a lot of changes done over a year of
development. See  for more details.
== Detailed description ==
New perl is released every year and updates containing mainly bug
fixes follow during the year. The 5.18.0 version is stable release
this year and 5.18.1 and subsequent revisions will follow during the
year to fix issues introduced in 5.18.0.
Because of change in dlopen(3) from RTLD_GLOBAL to RTLD_LOCAL (bug
#960048) , we will try to link all native perl module DSOs to
libperl.so explicitly. This item needs discussion. Current status
does not allow to use perl interpreter via dlopen() from other
programs (like slapd, snmpd), but proposed change can bring other
unforeseen difficulties (like double-linking).
So, there's nothing preventing the side tag and rebuild anytime now
right? 5.18.0 is out, so we could start that work in rawhide?
On the dlopen thing, what happens if you hit double-linking there?
Thats just a runtime error, not a build time error? is there any tools
we have to detect this?
Otherwise looks good to me.
