perl5: updated to 5.30.1

what is new for perl v5.30.1

Incompatible Changes
       There are no changes intentionally incompatible with 5.30.1.  If any
       exist, they are bugs, and we request that you submit a report.  See
       "Reporting Bugs" below.

Modules and Pragmata
   Updated Modules and Pragmata
       o   Module::CoreList has been upgraded from version 5.20190522 to
           5.20191110.

Documentation
   Changes to Existing Documentation
       We have attempted to update the documentation to reflect the changes
       listed in this document.  If you find any we have missed, send email to
       perlbug@perl.org <mailto:perlbug@perl.org>.

       Additionally, documentation has been updated to reference GitHub as the
       new canonical repository and to describe the new GitHub pull request
       workflow.

Configuration and Compilation
       o   The "ECHO" macro is now defined.  This is used in a \ 
"dtrace" rule
           that was originally changed for FreeBSD, and the FreeBSD make
           apparently predefines it.  The Solaris make does not predefine
           "ECHO" which broke this rule on Solaris.

Testing
       Tests were added and changed to reflect the other additions and changes
       in this release.

Platform Support
   Platform-Specific Notes
       Win32
           The locale tests could crash on Win32 due to a Windows bug, and
           separately due to the CRT throwing an exception if the locale name
           wasn't validly encoded in the current code page.

           For the second we now decode the locale name ourselves, and always
           decode it as UTF-8.

Selected Bug Fixes
       o   Setting $) now properly sets supplementary group ids, if you have
           the necessary privileges.

       o   "readline @foo" now evaluates @foo in scalar context.  \ 
Previously,
           it would be evaluated in list context, and since readline() pops
           only one argument from the stack, the stack could underflow, or be
           left with unexpected values on it.

       o   sv_gets() now recovers better if the target SV is modified by a
           signal handler.

       o   Matching a non-"SVf_UTF8" string against a regular expression
           containing Unicode literals could leak an SV on each match attempt.

       o   "sprintf("%.*a", -10000, $x)" would cause a \ 
buffer overflow due to
           mishandling of the negative precision value.

       o   "scalar()" on a reference could cause an erroneous assertion
           failure during compilation.

Log message:
perl5: updated to 5.26.2

5.26.2:

Security
[CVE-2018-6797] heap-buffer-overflow (WRITE of size 1) in S_regatom (regcomp.c)
A crafted regular expression could cause a heap buffer write overflow, with \ 
control over the bytes written.
[CVE-2018-6798] Heap-buffer-overflow in Perl__byte_dump_string (utf8.c)
Matching a crafted locale dependent regular expression could cause a heap buffer \ 
read overflow and potentially information disclosure.
[CVE-2018-6913] heap-buffer-overflow in S_pack_rec
pack() could cause a heap buffer write overflow with a large item count.
Assertion failure in Perl__core_swash_init (utf8.c)
Control characters in a supposed Unicode property name could cause perl to \ 
crash. This has been fixed.

Updated Modules and Pragmata
Module::CoreList has been upgraded from version 5.20170922_26 to 5.20180414_26.
PerlIO::via has been upgraded from version 0.16 to 0.17.
Term::ReadLine has been upgraded from version 1.16 to 1.17.
Unicode::UCD has been upgraded from version 0.68 to 0.69.

Selected Bug Fixes
The readpipe() built-in function now checks at compile time that it has only one \ 
parameter expression, and puts it in scalar context, thus ensuring that it \ 
doesn't corrupt the stack at runtime.
Fixed a use after free bug in pp_list introduced in Perl 5.27.1.
Parsing a sub definition could cause a use after free if the sub keyword was \ 
followed by whitespace including newlines (and comments).
The tokenizer now correctly adjusts a parse pointer when skipping whitespace in \ 
an ${identifier} construct.
Accesses to ${^LAST_FH} no longer assert after using any of a variety of I/O \ 
operations on a non-glob.
sort now performs correct reference counting when aliasing $a and $b, thus \ 
avoiding premature destruction and leakage of scalars if they are re-aliased \ 
during execution of the sort comparator.
Some convoluted kinds of regexp no longer cause an arithmetic overflow when compiled.
Fixed a duplicate symbol failure with -flto -mieee-fp builds. pp.c defined \ 
_LIB_VERSION which -lieee already defines.
A NULL pointer dereference in the S_regmatch() function has been fixed.
Failures while compiling code within other constructs, such as with string \ 
interpolation and the right part of s///e now cause compilation to abort \ 
earlier.
