        Here are some diffs to the _11 pods.  I forgot to add perldelta to
        perl.pod though.
        And *PLEASE* fix the Artistic License so it no longer has the bogus
        "whomever" misdeclined in the nominative case:
            under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whomever generated
            them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated with this
        It should obviously be "whoever".

        Subject: perl5.003_11, Should base use of gettimeofday on HAS_GETTIMEOFDAY, not I_SYS_TIME
        I've been installing perl5.003_11 on a SCO system that has the TCP/IP runtime
        installed but not the TCP/IP development system.
        Unfortunately the <sys/time.h> include file is included in the TCP/IP runtime
        while libsocket.a is in the development system.
        This means that pp.c decides to use "gettimeofday" because <sys/time.h> is
        present but I can't link the perl that gets compiled.
        So, here's a patch to base the use of "gettimeofday" on "HAS_GETTIMEOFDAY"
        instead of "I_SYS_TIME".  I also took the liberty of removing the special
        case for plan9 (I assume plan9 has <sys/time.h> but no gettimeofday.  Am I
