  1. New sample config files.

    Also add usemallocwrap to the ARM Cross config.sh - I'm guessing that
    as this is the only new symbol, it should be sufficient to make it
    work.

    We should be telling people about ..exp, else they use the unexpanded
    forms and shaft anyone who installs a private perl within ~
    
    [ 22723]
    INSTALL didn't mention the 5.8.2 hash changes. Fixed

    This should be L<>
    
    [ 22725]
    Punt the "reporting bugs" section to the top.
    Reorder the description of what to do, to start with the most common
    case.
    Clarify "how to report bugs effectively" (and why it benefits you)
    
    plus some edits to undo Gisle's "modernisation" of 5.8.0 to 5.9.0

  6. The set uid perl is now called setuidperl. Not suidperl.

    Which I discover is hardlinked from sperl by ./installperl
    elsewhere. Helpfully confusing installperl script.

  1. For maint, I don't think that we can have sperl go sulky if invoked

    from a #! line. So keep .../sperl functional, and have the /dev/fd/...
    only set ID exectuable reside under a different name (suidperl)
