	pkgsrc/lang/perl5/patches: patch-ca

Log Message:
Perl has no dependencies, so force patch the Configure script to make
library searches to start in the system directories instead of in the
pkgsrc-controlled directories.  This change is in the same spirit as
the one that caused the PKGREVISION bump to 6, but is more likely to
work on IRIX where plibpth needs to be set from the Configure script.
This time, we patch the Configure script instead of setting libpth in
the hints file because we depend on the values of variables which are
defined after the hints file is sourced by the Configure script.

XXX This breaks building perl on a platform that has native pthreads
XXX with PREFER_NATIVE_PTHREADS=no, but that's not really worthwhile
XXX to fix.
