Hi,

PatchContent.pm has an entry for XSLoader.pm:

goto \&XSLoader::bootstrap_inherit unless $module and defined
&dl_load_file;' => 'goto \&XSLoader::bootstrap_inherit;

This means, the "unless $module and defined &dl_load_file" condition is
stripped in line 34 of XSLoader.pm with the effect that "goto
\&XSLoader::bootstrap_inherit" is undonditional.

What is it good for?

TIA,

Oliver
