Hi there all,

Recently we got a bug report on freeradius that is not yet confirmed,
but seems likely to be right.  The short version is that rlm_perl does
not use the recommended perl macros to set up the environment correctly,
resulting in perl_parse() hanging in a futex lock on at least hppa.  The
slightly longer version is viewable at and the bug report linked from there.

There are tentative patches in our git tree viewable at;a=commitdiff;h=e651a5b660a416924ff1ba1ab6d741aecd5e399c
(the second one cleans up the compiler complaints the first introduced).
