	perl-5.8.4nb1 fails to build.

	cd lang/perl58 && make.  Famous last words from the second stage (work/static):

	gcc -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib  -L/usr/pkg/lib -o miniperl  miniperlmain.o opmini.o libperl.a -lm -lcrypt
	./miniperl -w -Ilib -MExporter -e '<?>' || /usr/bin/make minitest
	Attempt to free unreferenced scalar: SV 0x190b5c8.
	./miniperl -Ilib configpm configpm.tmp
	Use of uninitialized value in null operation at configpm line 666.
	Undefined subroutine &main:: called at configpm line 666.
	*** Error code 255

	configpm lines 666-669:

	die "$0: error processing $Config_PM"
		if defined($Config{'an impossible name'})
		or $Config{'PERL_CONFIG_SH'} ne 'true' # test cache

	Please. :-)
