It is my distinct impression that setuid perl scripts are supposed to
work.  That is, if you have an executable perl script with the setuid
bit, perl will start itself up and run suidperl or something and do
the necessary backflips to get itself running with the script's owner
as the effective UID.

This doesn't seem to to work in perl 5.8.8 on FreeBSD 6.0, using a
copy of perl built in the obvious way in the ports tree.  Is it
supposed to work?  Do I have to do something special to turn it on?

R's,
John
