If the patch list in local_patches contains anything that looks like a 
perl variable, it gets interpreted *as* a variable by 'perl -V' which 
builds a little perl program to actually display the output.  The 
attached patch protects the local_patches content with q{} instead of 
q"" - it's not a complete fix as a unbalanced { or } in a local_patches 
string will still break it, but it's better than what is there.
