I have my suspicions about code that looks like this:

  Request->load ($icache)
    if -f $icache && mtime ($icache) > mtime ($0);

I suspect it isn't portable to 5.005_02 but I haven't had time to check it.

No, it'd be fine with me.  Can you please add a check for this,
though?  I suppose "configure" should do the check, and reject any
perl that's too old.

I'll install 5.005_03 and redo the tests.
