Huge Updates to -Current Today

After one day offline because of the disruption of the Speedy cables, i'm back online with reports from the latest -Current updates which are huge updates. Almost old packages are updates to sync with the most bleeding edge (well, there are some downgrade on binutils and oprofile due to many reports on ld) and some package filename rename, but most of them are upgraded packages. Here's the latest -Current changelog:
Fri Feb 29 14:00:57 CST 2008

a/ed-0.9-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to ed-0.9. World's greatest line editor.

a/hdparm-8.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to hdparm-8.6.

a/lilo-22.8-i486-7.tgz: Patched liloconfig to make using the boot splash screen an expert option as well.

a/pkgtools-12.1.0-noarch-3.tgz: Have makepkg warn of two more common mistakes -- dropping man pages in /usr/share/man, or (now) using site_perl in a non-local package.

a/usbutils-0.73-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to usbutils-0.73 with fresh usb.ids.

ap/cdrtools-2.01.01a37-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to cdrtools-2.01.01a37.

ap/linuxdoc-tools-0.9.21-i486-5.tgz: Upgraded to asciidoc-8.2.5, docbook-utils-0.6.14-13.fc9, docbook-xsl-1.73.2, docbook-xsl-doc-1.73.2, gtk-doc-1.9, libsgmls-perl_1.03ii-32.diff, linuxdoc-tools_0.9.21-0.11, sgml-common-0.6.3-23.fc9, and xmlto-0.0.20. Thanks to Richard Hoyle for pointing out some missing asciidoc files under /etc/asciidoc.

ap/lm_sensors-2.10.5-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to lm_sensors-2.10.5.

d/binutils-2.17.50.0.17-i486-1.tgz: Reverted to binutils-2.17.50.0.17 due to many reports of ld bugs...

d/doxygen-1.5.5-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to doxygen-1.5.5.

d/git-1.5.4.3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to git-1.5.4.3. Switched to vendor_perl for the Git perl module.

d/oprofile-0.9.2-i486-5.tgz: Reverted to oprofile-0.9.2 compiled against binutils-2.17.50.0.17.

d/perl-5.8.8-i486-6.tgz: Use vendor_perl for Slackware-added Perl modules, not site_perl. Really, I think perl's handling of this (and other issues like the registry-like handling of perllocal.pod) is flawed, but this is better than nothing. IMHO, something like /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/ would fit much better with the FHS's recommendations.
Try not to clobber an existing perllocal.pod (hard to do after the fact, so make backups if you care...)

f/linux-howtos-20080227-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded to Linux-HOWTOs-20080227.: Recompiled all Qt things, since /usr/lib/qt-3.3.8/lib (no longer a valid path) was turning up in .la files.
