At least on my installation, that (further) breaks the autotools, as
they have version-specific Perl shebang lines. And if you're using
something like Razor2, which is XS, but which does *not* have 'p5' in
its name, you may run into problems.
I abhor a system designed for the "user", if that word is a coded
pejorative meaning "stupid and unsophisticated". -- Ken Thompson
Unix is user friendly. However, it isn't idiot friendly.
Please CC me in all replies, even if I'm on the relevant list(s).
