[arch-dev-public] Perl 5.26 rebuild in progress

A quick heads-up: we are in the process of pushing rebuilds for Perl
5.26 to [staging]. Please avoid starting other rebuilds until this is
completed, to avoid possible overlap with the Perl rebuild.

Some build or test failures are expected due to Perl 5.26's removal of
the current directory from the default include path. [1] These will be
dealt with as they appear throughout rebuild process.

There does not exist a ToDo for this rebuild, instead it's coordinated
using https://rebuilds.foutrelis.com/ which also displays the rebuild
progress and any build failures.

Florian will follow up with more details before or when Perl 5.26 moves
to [testing].
