Re: [Andreas J. Koenig] C3 MRO breaks Params::Util and Graph
Message ID:
I think someone earlier in the year pointed out that we left a bug in 
the build system which made it far too easy to build Perl without the XS 
parts of Scalar::Util, and that in fact it was that that was the problem.

Vendors were building with some sort of default settings, and not 
getting the XS parts.
