The easiest way to find this is to run a bisection on the month or so's 
commits that could have caused this.  Does your machine have enough 
throughput that it could do this?

And that means compiling perl at a given commit that's bad, and then 
cleaning the directory, and running it again at the last known good 
commit.  Then running it yet again at the commit half way between these 
two.  Then repeating on the half of the original range where it changed. 
  We have a tool that will automatically do this.  You set it going, and 
let it run until it finds the offending commit.

I haven't brought this up before, because I thought your hardware was 
too slow for this.  But this instance would be relatively few commits, 
so that it might be feasible.

I would furnish you the correct incantation to get it to work, after 
having tested it on my machine.
