Thanks for the report. This is odd, because I don't have perl-devel installed,
and it also builds in plague. I don't mind adding the patch, just wanted to have
a better understanding of the issue.
I see, my updates were stale (-12), once I found an uptodate mirror, I see
the new perl-devel package. Fixed, will push out shortly.
