The 17 FAIL reports I got from CPAN testers confirm that Sys::Syslog  
0.25 indeed fails on 5.10.0 on all systems, but works on 5.8.x and  
previous versions. This is very visible on the test results matrix:

 From the tests I did at work, I checked that it works on maint-5.8  
and fails on blead and maint-5.10 (this was on a Linux x86-64 box).

The problem can be reduced to this:

$ perl5.8.8 -Mblib -MSys::Syslog -le 'print Sys::Syslog::constant 

$ perl5.11.0 -Mblib -MSys::Syslog -le 'print Sys::Syslog::constant 
LOG_INFO is not a valid Sys::Syslog macro

constant() is the function defined by ExtUtils::Constant.

I'm diff'ing the generated files with both 5.8.6 and 5.10.0 but I  
first need to upgrade the modules in my 5.10.0 in order to reduce the
