    Oh you slack bastard Schwern! I wish you had done this last week.

    I butchered my FreeBSD ports system on my laptop to install bleadperl as an official port, to see what breaks. After a certain amount of grief, I made it work.

    Of course, all XS modules with stuff in 5.8.8/mach and the like evidently stopped working. So for svk, I had to reinstall SVN::Core. Here I ran into Configure hell where sometime /usr/bin/perl (5.8.8) was used, and elsewhere /usr/local/bin/perl (5.10). And so it could never find the libraries. Took me about 8 hours on and off playing with PERL5LIB, PATH and /etc/make.conf trying to get everyone to dance to the same tune.

    This module would have saved me a lot of time. Schwern++ for actually having written this.
