[PATCH] Symbian sync
Message ID:

Small regressions conquered.

(1) PL_reg_names[] was new globally modifiable data.  Cannot be.
    regcomp.pl tweaked to constify it, run to regen regnodes.h.

(2) AutoSplit.pm had joined 5.9.5-only club.  This posed a problem
    to Symbian build (or many cross-compiling builds, I guess) where
    the host Perl (probably q 5.8.x) tried to use the AutoSplit.pm when
    building the extensions.  I had to resort to quite ugly tricks,
    hopefully it now works for both 5.8.x and 5.9.x.  I hope Rafael
    forgives me for backpedaling his 5.9-pride :-)  (Of course one
    could make a requirement that to cross-build Perl x.y you need
    to have Perl x.y also in the host, but that would sound cruel.
    Being backward compat to at least the previous maint sounds nicer.)

(3) I did the build with Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition,
    which uses the Microsoft Visual C 8, instead of the old VC6,
    and amazingly it worked.  So noted.
