Rebuilt from -src, installed, dir layout, etc.  All good.

As far as your comment about building with/without nls support, you are 
correct that doing so would require another "package" -- the perl 
Locale::gettext module.  That module does build and install without 
problems, but as you say:

"but until last week we hadn't dealt with distributing Perl modules, and 
I wasn't interested in being the first."

That's a fair argument.

Good to go.


P.S. YAY! I can remove one of my "adopt-me" packages!!! :-)
