You are probably right. But in this case a test should be added for
the version of perl to ensure that the file is compiled correctly. I
have a 5.6.1 version installed and it works. On an old redhat 7.2
machine I have 5.005_03 and it has similar issues to what you have
At this point without know which version work, a warning should probably
be given if the version in earlier than 5.6.0
