Inline::check_config_file broken by 5.9.3 blead perl
Message ID:

Inline's make test was croaking in

My tests seem to indicate that compiling the line that checks for
    defined %main::Inline::Config::
caused the symbol to exist.    (see how the test case file q.t
causes %main::Inline::Config:: to be added to the symbol
table after the eval.
(This also shows that the "exists" check
   doesn't modify the symbol table, and
   it does catch when the symbol is in the table)

$ perl q.t
defined at (eval 1) line 1.
exists 2 at q.t line 3.
$ cat q.t
warn "exists 1" if exists $main::Inline::{'Config::'};
eval " warn 'defined' if defined %main::Inline::Config::;";
warn "exists 2" if exists $main::Inline::{'Config::'};
