|Subject:||Add FAQ about RH 9's brokenness.|
Redhat shipped a very broken Perl with 9.0 up until, and including, Enterprise 3. It likes to generate corrupt Makefiles. MakeMaker should provide a FAQ about this so I don't have to keep answering it. Here's the bug report. It effects their perl-5.8.0-88 rpm.A work around is to set LANG to something not Unicode such as C or en. Here is the updated Perl. Here is the even more updated Perl. Here is a Perl shipped by Redhat which is less than 3 years old.
