    • Note to kids finding this on google: since this person never came back and bothered to offer any evidence to support their claim, you can probably ignore it. Personally, if there is a problem here, I'd love to know about it, but frankly, my Ubuntu system has been fine since I've done this.

        Thanks for writing this up, by the way: I've been trying to build an old perl, and I had pretty much blundered my way through to just before the last fix you have here-- and I was glad to see that you didn't understand where the problem came from either.
