Well, thats a relief. :)

So, we'd need:

(which requires)
\perl-Test-Harness >= 2.62 (core perl provided 2.56)

We can either entirely extract these components from the core tree
before building core perl, or we can just let them build and not package
them (the simpler approach, and the one I have initially chosen).

But when I did that, I hit problems:
/usr/bin/perlcc needs ExtUtils::Embed (circular dep?)
/usr/bin/perlivp needs ExtUtils::Installed (circular dep?)
/usr/bin/h2xs needs ExtUtils::MakeMaker (circular dep?)
/usr/bin/libnetcfg needs ExtUtils::MakeMaker (circular dep?)

I don't think there is going to be a good way to pull these items out of
core without introducing circular deps.
