(or rsync -avz --delete ftp.linux.activestate.com::perl-5.8.x perl-5.8.x)

(It seems that the @ 20277 didn't have 20277 in patchlevel.h, duh.)

Since Stas got mod_perl 2.x (well, 1.99_x) working with the randomised
hashes, and I somehow managed to dodge an illegal memory access
(resulting in perl crashing) in Win32, I think nothing much critical
is standing in the way of RC3.  And I hope Arthur doesn't manage to
reproduce a certain thread crash because *then* we would have nothing
much critical standing in the way of 5.8.1... :-)

What I'd like people to especially test is CPAN.pm since I had
to do various patching on it, Andreas being busy at the moment.
The new PKI signatures stuff may cause some problems.

Sean Burke said that maybe it's better for him to wait until Perl
5.8.1 comes out before he does the pod =encoding stuff, since there
are so many problems with encoding IO in 5.8.0.

The PL_sigfpe_save problem might be a non-problem since I think
it really happens only if you already have a Perl of the same
release level installed, hardly a normal occurrence.

The 'make distclean' is still messy in that not all files that should
be cleaned, are... paging Dr Schwern, paging Dr Schwern.

Changes since the last:
