As threatened earlier, I've written up a patch to fix Cwd.pm in perl so it will build in a Dreamhost account. Now you can upgrade to 5.8.8.
The issue is that Perl's own version of abs_path() didn't know how to deal with a parent directory it didn't have read permissions on. On Dreamhost, you can't read /home. The patch will eventually go into PathTools.
Also, do you know if this patch works for 5.10.0 ?
And wrt 5.10...I should known better, its almost 3 years different.
Note to self: don't post on early Sunday mornings.
