Note that "official" package releases *must* be built only on systems 
that do not have any snapshots or unreleased versions of dependencies. 
That is, build your perl against a snapshot if you want, but don't 
release it to sourceware unless you rebuild against 1.3.2 or 1.3.3. 
Ditto "unreleased" versions of dependencies like zlib or readline or 
whatever.

I made this mistake once with one of my packages -- that is, building it 
on a system that had a snaphost dll -- and it caused no end of problems.
