Some I think, yes.  There's a later smoke now posted to the list  
(though I can't find a URL for it yet).

I'll try to write up what I know about what's still failing.  I've  
been juggling multiple things in crunch mode lately and unable to get  
any time for Perl fixes.

You'll need a free DECUSserve membership in order to get free hobbyist  
licenses.  See

<http://labs.hoffmanlabs.com/node/1416>

It's all perfectly legal as long as you're not using the system for  
commercial purposes.

PersonalAlpha is the free version of a very impressive emulation  
product.  Bear in mind that it's true emulation, though, not  
hypervisor-style virtualization, so it will be much, much slower than  
the host system.  The free version is also limited to a miniscule  
slice of memory by today's standards (I think it's 256MB).  Basically  
it's designed to be a drop-in replacement for a mid-1990s workstation,  
and it does that admirably.  It is possible to do a build of a recent  
Perl on one of these (I've done it) but it might take 12-24 hours  
depending on the host system.
