I tried to apply the patch from revision 1503556 to the current debian 
sources (version 2.5.0 rc3). The patch applied with only one rejected 
hunk, which I applied by hand.

Embperl built fine and tests that previously failed (51 escape.htm) 
now pass. However, some other tests not fail.

With perl 5.18:

 #32 notfound.htm...           

 Expected 1 more error(s) in logfile

 Input:     test/html/notfound.htm
 Output:        test/tmp/out.htm
 Log:       test/tmp/test.log
   errors = 1

and with perl 5.14:

 #247 rtf/rtfadv.asc...        Error in Line 52
 Is:    >{Ulrike}<
 Should:    >{Sarah}<

If the tests pass for you, I guess we could try packaging a snapshot 
from SVN's trunk.
