perl 5.16 is ready in svn and compiles fine both in 32 and 64 bits iurts.

blino will submit it soon using some special tricks - those are needed
since there is a bootstrap problem between perl and urpmi.

when blino has done it, there will be a need to recompile binary perl
modules and other deps (usual suspects: vim, apache, etc).

before those are rebuilt and before i send a "clear to proceed" message
on this mailing list, DO NOT FORCE THE INSTALL if urpmi is complaining:
this would be the best way to break your cauldron box [0]. don't report
those errors here either since i'll be working on them.


[0] note that i don't promise that following those rules won't break
    your system nevertheless! :-)
