Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

[ #16933 ]
Yet more hacking and a perl5.005_03-MAINT22178 has escaped into the world. This should now work under FreeBSD and OpenBSD. Changes:

        Log: Work around bug where Linux libc's have Berekeley DB 2 in them
             Patch by Paul Marquess <>,
             DB_File's maintainer. His description:

             The patch is to work around a problem where some versions of
             Linux have a C library with Berkeley DB version 2 embedded in
             it. This makes life difficult if you want to build with a
             version of Berkeley DB other than the one embedded in
             libc. This problem is compounded by the way Perl used to
             *always* include the Berkeley DB library when it was being
             built. The DB_File patches solves the latter problem, by
             retrofitting the fix to Configure et al that was included from
             perl 5.6 on. I think your best course of action is to just
             apply the 5.00503 patch to the 5.00504 source. I just tried
             applying it and it seems ok.
     Branch: maint-5.005/perl
           ! Configure Makefile.SH lib/ExtUtils/
           ! lib/ExtUtils/ lib/ExtUtils/
