Considering that Perl 5.8.9 was released in 2008 (so eight years ago), what
distribution is still shipping perl 5.8.9?  Instead of forcing everyone to
build perl-native before openssl can build (and adding perlnative to more
recipes as they're discovered to fail with ancient perl) anyone using an
old distribution should simply use buildtools, as this is exactly what
they're for.
