It is hacky. I'm not very familiar with perl, I just try to build it.

I checked perl's repository and found that newest perl does consider this problem:

http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/commit/bd31be4baa3ee68abdb92c0db3200efe0fad903b

So the root cause is in my perl version.

What's your policy then? Do you think we should provid a workaround or just force
users update their perl?

Thank you.
