bugfix update in Fedora 26 for perl

Status: stable 2 years ago

This release fixes shell bangs in perl-tests package, parsing braced subscript after parentheses, handling attribute specification on our variables, a crash when a match for inversely repeated group fails, an overflow when parsing a character range with no preceding character, walking symbol table for ISA in Carp, handling file names with null bytes in stat and lstat functions, a crash when untying an object witout a stash, deparsing of transliterations with unprintable characters, error reporting on do() on a directory, stack manipulation when a lexical subroutine is defined in a do block in a member of an iteration list, setting $! when statting a closed filehandle, tainting of s/// with overloaded replacement, expanding system() arguments, and undefined behavior when copying memory in Glob and pp_caller. It also removes invalid macro definitions from macros.perl and a workaround for a fixed bug in glibc libcrypt. It also starts linking all XS modules to pthread library to ensure proper symbol resolution.
