The effect of the bug in question is if you have some kind of
syntax error somewhere, perl will exit with just “unknown error”
instead of the more informative message it should produce.

Presumably you don’t run code with syntax errors in production,
so the bug should have no bearing there; you only need a fixed
perl on your development machine. Therefore I suggest you just
compile a patched perl.
