The 5.30 branch of Perl integrates a change that is problematic for
embedded Perl usage (currently Apache mod_perl is known to suffer from
this). There's a patch against the 5.30.1 maint branch to revert that
change, but it makes the resulting Perl binary incompatible (i.e. all XS
modules stop working) due to the changing interpreter size.


Regards,
Achim.
