Today, December 18, was Perl's 20th birthday -- and the birth day of  
a new Perl.

Perl 5.10 was released today and began to make its way to CPAN  
mirrors at around 4 pm ET.

I've so far successfully built it on Darwin and on Linux; can we get  
some tests on the various BSDs as well?

Here's one way to get the source from a CPAN mirror and build it:

wget http://cpan.pair.com/modules/by-authors/id/R/RG/RGARCIA/ 
tar xzvf perl-5.10.0.tar.gz
cd perl-5.10.0
sh Configure -de
make test
make install
