in reply to Re^2: The Deceiver
in thread Why does a Perl 5.6 regex run a lot slower on Perl 5.8?

What do you expect? RedHat have packaged a completely broken version of GCC. RedHat have packaged problematically patched Linux kernels. RedHat have packaged a half-broken TeX distribution. That RedHat would seriously bork a Perl package seems hardly surprising.

It's not the GCC project's fault and not the Linux kernel team's fault and not the TeX project's fault that RedHat broke their software and it isn't the Perl5 porters' fault that RedHat broke their Perl package either.

Makeshifts last the longest.

    To add few bits to your list,

    ... RedHat ships with badly packaged Tcl/Tk, (this was discussed in Tcl::Tk module development list and this makes supporting of Tcl::Tk considerably harder on RedHat)
