[PATCH perl@8958 and 5.6.1-trial2] bug fixingspree
Message ID:
This patch consolidates a number of fixups (and one associated 
descrip_mms.template change) floated recently on vmsperl by Charles Lane, 
Peter Prymmer, and me.  There is one gzipped attachment here that includes 
"blead" in the filename, formulated against perl@8958, and there is one that 
includes "maint" taken against 5.6.1-trial2; the differences are few and 
mostly contextual.  After applying these, both versions test out ok (except 
for work in progress like t/pod/find.t in bleadperl). 

Files affected: 

   o, vms/descrip_mms.template

Summary of changes:

   o  ccname handling more like Configure (Peter)

   o  extra.pods handling implemented (Peter)

   o  allow specifying cf_email (and indirectly perladmin) as a
      command-line option (Craig)

   o  set alignbytes to 16 when using long doubles (Craig)

   o  wrap version strings in quotes to keep munchconfig from overeating 

   o  change d_sbrkproto to define'd -- necessary for using Perl's malloc(), 
      but see ch. 8 of the C RTL manual for potential problems with using 
      sbrk() on VMS (Charles)

   o  make work in batch mode (Craig)

   o  implement aphostname (Peter)

   o  fix uvXUformat typo (Peter)

   o  make shmattype intelligibly non-existent (Craig)
