* * Future-proof autoconf's Perl version test.
GHC only works with Perl versions 5.6 and later; however
the current test greps in a rather non-future-proof way
(explicitly against 5.6 and 5.8).
We instead exploit the "v-string" change in 5.6, which
displays the version string as "v5.x.y", rather than
the earlier format "version 5.xxx_yyy". Hence grepping
against "v5" will make it future proof for a while.
(At least until Perl 6 is installed as the system perl.)
