Actually, libperl seems to dump core in the same place in every PG
version, back to and including 7.2, so what seems more likely is that
this copy of perl is just plain broken.  Since we didn't have any form
of regression test for plperl back then, it's entirely possible that
I never tested any further than compiling plperl with that setup.

So we still need someone to try it with a good copy of 5.6 ...
