Possibly. I don't do Perl, so I have no idea how fixable it is, nor am
I interested in trying.
Perhaps we should mark both BROKEN and remove them after branching?

It's probably worth at least trying the update, if anyone feels like

If there were any guarantee that would fix the problem...

...we could restrict everything that doesn't build, but then the
chances of them getting fixed drop to nearly zero. Although these have
been hanging around broken for a long time.

Someone should at least look to see if it's e.g. just failing to

It doesn't build on netbsd-5 either.

Probably better to fix it properly.

Yes, well, let's give him a bit longer...

Not sure. It's already restricted; there's a bunch of complicated

eh, probably better to fix it.

I fixed it; wasn't actually that big a mess.

I'm starting to think that's the right approach. How about I mark it
BROKEN now, and we remove it after the freeze?
