Could you please take the matter up with the manager of the archive? perl5-porters looks after maintenance of the perl source code: maintenance of binary versions is up to the person or organization that propagates them. Thanks. (It would probbaly help if you told the manager how the incompleteness manifests itself.) If you have an ANSI C compiler on your system, you can always build perl from the source at -- Dominic Dunlop

Well, you certainly didn't tell us what was missing, and you still haven't. If your email to sunfreeware was as vague as the one to p5p, I don't wonder they ignored it. To the bugtron-keeper: I suggest this be marked 'closed', especially as it doesn't affect the official distribution of perl. If Marta cares to substantiate her claim that there are things missing from the sunfreeware package, then she should let the keeper of the CPAN readme files know some specifics so that he can decide whether to mention this on the relevant documentation page.
