Perl 5.8.0 is last clean stable perl for hpux 11.00.

Both perl 5.8.1 and 5.8.2 have the following problems:

1) they can't find auto/POSIX/autosplit.ix during 'make'. It is there at the
conclusion of make, and it is found if make is rerun a second time, or
during 'make test'.
2) they want to remake their .sl (shared library) files during 'make test'
(if 'make' is not rerun a second time).
3) they no longer run lib/ExtUtils/t/Constant cleanly. The failing test is
reported variously as 3, 103, or 33.
4) they have a new test lib/ExtUtils/t/Recurs that fails intermittently. It
often fails on either test 6 or test 14 with 256 where 0 expected.
5) they have a new test lib/Net/Ping/t/450_service that always fails on test

Both HP's ANSI cc and gcc were tried. Chip architecture is PA-RISC2.0.

These problems were not seen on Solaris or AIX.
