Hi,

As of the previous maint snapshot (19525) installed on a modern linux
system, I found out that some perl source files do not pass 'perl -c'
syntax check.  Though some cases may be arguable (especially demos), I
believe it would be neat if all those files compile and run perfectly.

Other cases show that some modules required for other modules to run are
simply inexistent, which in turn means that perl bundle is not
self-sufficient.  Though some rate of inconsistency could be admitted,
there's nothing in it one should get excited about, either.

Here is the full (or almost full) list of the files:

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/Attribute/Handlers/demo/demo.pl line 4.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/Attribute/Handlers/demo/demo2.pl line 4.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/Attribute/Handlers/demo/demo3.pl line 2.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/Attribute/Handlers/demo/demo4.pl line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/Attribute/Handlers/demo/demo_hashdir.pl line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/Attribute/Handlers/demo/demo_range.pl line 3.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/Class/ISA/test.pl line 16.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/File/Spec/VMS.pm line 13.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/Pod/Perldoc/ToRtf.pm line 8.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/Pod/Perldoc/ToTk.pm line 23.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/Pod/Perldoc/ToXml.pm line 8.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/bytes_heavy.pl line 4.

Please see if we can do something about it.
Thanks,
