Well, perl5-security-report is mentioned in INSTALL and the most recent
perdeltas, but that's about it. Conversely, the string 'perlbug' appears
in all the following places (ignoring old perldeltas): 


Rather than patching many of those files, perhaps a more feasible approach

if so, email the report to the other address? (But not for 5.10.1).
