This makes me wonder if the GNU folks have stale releases, how many other
sites do too. Perhaps it should be noted either in the readme or in
Configure that if you didn't get the source from CPAN or perl.com that you
might not have the latest stable release.
Err, that's exactly what my patch was for, that started this subthread.

Stale releases are a fact of life. Think of people who burn CDs.
And the wording of the licences actively encourages people to squirrel
copies of Perl away in various archives.
