The proper fix for that break (libperl) to make sure that such an
essential utility stays working in the future would be to check for
libperl at runtime and dlopen() it.  The Vim folks might take a patch
(or bug report) for that.  Then if libperl breaks (it can happen even
outside of Rawhide when you make certain kinds of mistakes) the standard
UNIX text editor will still work.
