I actually submitted a patch for CPIO ages ago, along with a few
others which still haven't been committed (see attached patch).  The
perl part of the patch is especially important and should have been
committed before the 5.2-RELEASE package builds.  Perl 5.6.1 is so old
it's nearly useless, and installing a package with a dependency on
Perl 5.6.1 will clobber Perl 5.8.2 without warning if it's installed.
