Perl 5.6.2 RC1

Here is the first release candidate for perl 5.6.2. When the CPAN
mirrors will have synced it, it will be available from

Before this, you can also rsync the current source tree from ActiveState :

    rsync -avz rsync:// .

Most changes happened in the compilation / configuration / installation

I also upgraded the following modules : Data::Dumper, DB_File,
ExtUtils::MakeMaker, File::Spec, File::Temp, Safe, Test, and
Test::Harness ; and added Test::{Builder,More,Simple} and the if pragma.
Note that it contains MakeMaker 6.17 (as does perl 5.8.2), not the
recent 6.20, that was causing problems with the peculiar makefiles
of SDBM_File.

It's now time to find, report and fix the remaining build problems.
