Unfortunately, lots of other things appear to depend on it, so it not
building has a rather sever knock-on effect.
For instance, perl-Future has it as a buildrequire, and perl-IO-Async
has both perl-Future and perl-Test-Refcount as buildrequires...
surely this sort of mess should've been sorted out before 5.18 was ever
Why? Upstream released new version, they can't check all modules on
cpan. Usually modules, which can't be built have dead or slower upstreams.
