The patch has one purpose only: to allow one to build perl itself in an 
environment where PERL_YAML_BACKEND is set to something that is expected 
to be installed ahead of time. As it currently stands perl's 
post-compilation test run (which includes tests of P::C::M) will fail.

The perceived rush is so that people who do have a nonstandard ENV will 
not have to wait another month before they can compile random bleadperl 
without the need to sanitize their environment.
