I have rebuilt ~2000 source packages (those matching -perl or
build-depending on libperl-dev) against Perl 5.10.1.
246 packages failed to build with 'Error 13' at the end of the log,
which matches very well the results of grepping through debian/rules
(and debian/local.mk) for PREFIX without DESTDIR. I've gone through the
small discrepancies between the two lists, and I think there's little
chance for false positives.
I propose a mass bug filing with severity 'important', which will be
raised to 'serious' once Perl 5.10.1 gets in sid. I'll coordinate the
sid upload with the release team, no timeline yet.
I'm attaching a dd-list of the packages. Build logs can be found at
