Perl 5.16, as any other new perl version, requires all modules that are
not purely perl code to be rebuilt. We did that for all packages in our

For a list of upstream changes please refer to `man perldelta`.

Package changes:
 - Fix FS#27173 - [perl] Remove RPATH

Since users probably installed some from AUR or with
CPANPLUS::Dist::Arch, I wrote a script[1] that generates a local rebuild
 - raw.txt contains a list of files that generated an error
 - perl-modules.txt contains a list of modules the files belong to (not
mapped to distributions; I'd gladly accept a fix for that)
 - pacman.txt contains a list of pacman packages the files belong to

Binaries linking with libperl.so will also need to be rebuilt. You can
use lddd from devtools to find those.

Please report any issue you encounter.
