I've commited a rough patch (#22925) to bleadperl to "fix" this. It
makes the situation a bit better (and the regression tests of Sys::Mknod
now pass on mandrake-cooker -- if Sam Vilain hears us.)

I strongly recommend that this is backported to maintperl. At least I'm
currently in the process of integrating it with the 5.8.4 that ships
with Mandrakelinux.
