broken modules

As we enter the run-up to 5.14, here's my shitlist of modules that
got broken in 5.13 and aren't getting fixed.  Specifically, these are
modules that work on 5.12.3, broke on 5.13.9 or earlier, and remain broken
until 5.13.10.  (There are a couple of modules broken only on 5.13.10,
but I expect they'll be fixed in a few days.)

Devel::Declare 0.006000
	PL_linestr reallocation arrangement broke in 5.13.7.  Patch
	available as rt.cpan.org #63244.  Consequential breakage:
	MooseX::Declare, TryCatch.

Math::BigInt::FastCalc 0.26
Math::BigInt::GMP 1.35
Math::BigInt::Lite 0.14
	Think these all got broken by a change to the Math::BigInt::Calc
	API in Math::BigInt 1.97.  I sent a patch for M:B:Lite to rafl
	privately.

Math::Pari 2.01080604
	Was using PERL_POLLUTE, and got broken when that went away in
	5.13.4.  Reported as rt.cpan.org #61271.  Consequential breakage:
	Math::BigInt::Pari.

Module::Install 1.00
	Broken since 5.13.5, apparently due to an incompatibility with
	ExtUtils::MakeMaker reported as rt.cpan.org #61464.

Test::Warn 0.22
	Got confused by the (?^:) change in 5.13.6.  Reported as
	rt.cpan.org #61649.  Consequential breakage: MooseX::Declare,
	TryCatch.

YAML 0.72
	Got confused by the (?^:) change in 5.13.6.  Reported as
	rt.cpan.org #62258.
