[PATCH 0/1] Perl 5.24.0 update

From: Leo Famulari
Subject: [PATCH 0/1] Perl 5.24.0 update
Date: Tue, 16 Aug 2016 18:43:57 -0400

This updates Perl to 5.24.0.

I tested it by creating perl-next on master, and building that. I also
made perl-boot0 use perl-next and built that perl-boot0 successfully.

The patches for CVE-2015-8607 and CVE-2016-2381 are removed, since those
issues have been fixed in this release, in Perl commits 0b6f93036 and 
ae37b791a7, respectively.

The perl-source-date-epoch patch was meant to prevent the encoding of
timestamps in man pages by the Pod::Man module. Podlators, which is the 
source of Pod::Man, has been updated to 4.07 in this release of Perl
[0], and Pod::Man was made to respect the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment
variable in 4.03 [1]. So this patch is removed.

And the perl-no-build-time patch deactivated the code that embedded the
compilation timestamp that is normally printed by `perl -V`. Perl 5.24.0
can take this value from the macro PERL_BUILD_DATE [2], so I removed the
old patch and added perl-reproducible-build-date.patch.

I don't love this patch... we could instead do something like what
happens in the Erlang package. There we instead get SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH
from the environment and do some format string transformations to make a
pretty date string.
