Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.22.1nb1, Package name: perl-5.22.1nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Perl is a general-purpose programming language originally developed
for text manipulation and now used for a wide range of tasks including
system administration, web development, network programming, GUI
development, and more. The language is intended to be practical (easy
to use, efficient, complete) rather than beautiful (tiny, elegant,
minimal). Its major features are that it's easy to use, supports both
procedural and object-oriented (OO) programming, has powerful built-in
support for text processing, and has one of the world's most impressive
collections of third-party modules.

Log message:
Backport upstream fix for pointersize test

The symbol 'main' is multiply defined because Perl 5's `Configure`
script erroneously appends `try.c`, instead of overwriting it.

This change backports an upstream patch, which will not be needed once
Perl 5 5.23.x is available.
