This is a bug report for perl from slaven@rezic.de,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.41 running under perl 5.27.9.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
After running "install Bundle::Snapshot..." in a CPAN shell in
a perl 5.27.9 installation I've been left with a broken perl:

    $ perl5.27.9 -MExtUtils::MakeMaker -e1	  
    perl5.27.9: symbol lookup error: /opt/perl-5.27.9/lib/site_perl/5.27.9/x86_64-linux/auto/version/vxs/vxs.so: undefined symbol: STORE_NUMERIC_LOCAL_SET_STANDARD
    $ perl5.27.9 -MCPAN -e1		  
    perl5.27.9: symbol lookup error: /opt/perl-5.27.9/lib/site_perl/5.27.9/x86_64-linux/auto/version/vxs/vxs.so: undefined symbol: STORE_NUMERIC_LOCAL_SET_STANDARD
    $ perl5.27.9 -Mversion -MEncode -e1
    perl5.27.9: symbol lookup error: /opt/perl-5.27.9/lib/site_perl/5.27.9/x86_64-linux/auto/version/vxs/vxs.so: undefined symbol: STORE_NUMERIC_LOCAL_SET_STANDARD

The interesting lines in the CPAN update log are probably these:

...
vars is up to date (1.03).
version::regex is up to date (0.9918).
Running install for module 'version::vpp'
Checksum for /home/slaven.rezic/.cpan/sources/authors/id/J/JP/JPEACOCK/version-0.9918.tar.gz ok
...
  JPEACOCK/version-0.9918.tar.gz
  /usr/bin/make test -- OK
Running make install
...
Installing /opt/perl-5.27.9/lib/site_perl/5.27.9/x86_64-linux/auto/version/vxs/vxs.so
...
version::vxs is up to date (0.9918).
vmsish is up to date (1.04).
...


So the existence of version::vpp (which does not seem to be part of newer
perls anymore) triggered the version.pm update, and installed a version.pm
which is apparently incompatible with current bleadperl.

Probably the same problem would happen if a reinstall method on version
would be run (in a CPAN shell: test version + install_tested, with cpanm:
cpanm --reinstall version) (not tested).

I also noticed that vutil.c was edited in the perl core despite of
a notice on top of the file that it should not be edited here, but
in the version distribution.

It looks like a new CPAN release of version.pm should be done.
