Oops. I failed to note that I removed support for building on BeOS. BeOS was an operating system for personal computers developed by Be Inc, initially for their BeBox hardware. The OS Haiku was written as an open source replacement/continuation for BeOS, and its perl port is current and actively maintained.
The BeOS port had not been updated since 2004.
Support for the EPOC port was removed the previous month, and MPE/iX the month before. The next "victim" is Rhapsody, which will be removed before the v5.17.8 release.
The list of suspected "special biologist word for stable" platforms is here:
