As I have been slowly building all the modules myself and thus replacing
the ones in perl_vendor these issues have gone away.  I still don't know
what caused it, but maybe you could review the compiler settings you
used and/or simply rebuild the perl-vendor package before release.  One
problem that remains is that perl-OpenGL will sometimes crash when it
checks the server capabilities (it did that before IIRC, but now does
more often).  With the new X server from a few days ago it reliably
crashes the rootless/multiwindow configuration with a really hairy
backtrace, but rooted X is still OK.  I think that the threadedness of
the new perl might come into play here.  There were a few residual test
fails that might be related to fork failures, I'll run the tests again
when the packages are properly installed and all DLL rebased, but there
were no issues that were noticeably worse than with 5.10.

I found out today that perl-Tk from the 5.10 version won't work since
the architecture has changed from i686-cygwin to
i686-cygwin-threaded-int64, so I'll have to re-package that one too,
which brings the number of perl-* packages to exactly 200 (I've built
another 40 or so locally for building and testing, but I'll probably not
package them all - at least not now).
