I don't think this is major, but the perl5db.t changes introduced
a test failure on Linux when the 'man' command is not available.
(This happens to be the case in our minimal build environments unless
 a dependency on the corresponding man package is declared.)

  not ok 116 - perldoc command works fine
  # Failed test 116 - perldoc command works fine at lib/perl5db.t line 2702
  #      got ''
  # expected /(?^:No manual entry for perlrules)/

It's not perfect, but would it be enough to just skip this test if
/usr/bin/man isn't present?  See the attached patch.

Also, something that caught my eye: LC_MESSAGES is spelled wrongly
in perl5db.t. This is most probably just cosmetic, but attaching
a patch anyway.
