In perl.c:

  #  ifdef PERL_GIT_UNCOMMITTED_CHANGES
    SV *num = newSVpvs(PERL_PATCHNUM "*");

In git_version.h

  /**************************************************************************
  * WARNING: 'git_version.h' is automatically generated by make_patchnum.pl
  *          DO NOT EDIT DIRECTLY - edit make_patchnum.pl instead
  ***************************************************************************/
  #define PERL_GIT_UNCOMMITTED_CHANGES 

In make_patchnum.pl:

  #define PERL_GIT_UNCOMMITTED_CHANGES $status

...but since there is no .patch or .git, $status is presumably undef, and I
think (my knowledge of cpp being near nil) that it will basically result in
"something true" then.

So, it looks like there is a local patch, but none list.

This is probably not a catastrophe and can just get sorted out next month with
5.10.2? :-)
