Summary: missing config.h in latest -14

Yes, this is related to our splitting out perl-devel in -14 - 'yum install
perl-devel' should fix the problem.  See bug #226276

AFAIS, this change seems to break building of any perl-module.

=> All perl modules' spec files from now on would require to change all
perl-modules to "BuildRequire: perl-devel" - Are you seriously wanting this?

As this thing doesn't seem to be baked yet[1], and as I don't want to
see FE-6 and FE-5 being locked out from updates, for now, I will ignore
this issue on rawhide, i.e. you will likely see broken EVRs between
rawhide and older FE, on my perl-modules, soon.

The same issue will affect the grepmail update I'm just about to do as well. I'm not adding the perl=devel buildreq just yet until a firm decision on whether all modules have to BR: perl=devel is made.

[1] Why is such a massive change being introduced such kind of late in a
release cycle? IMO, it's way to late, and should be postponed to F8 once
things have been sorted out.

It's clearly come about as a result of the perl spec cleanup during the merge review, but I think splitting out perl-devel at this point is a bit late given the number of packages that will need changing (unless as Ralf suggests, the hack of adding perl-devel to the FC7 buildroot is made).
