PATCH: Bump Locale-Codes from 3.28 to 3.29

I just released Locale-Codes-3.29 which contains the core modules
Locale::Country, Locale::Language, and Locale::Currency.  The patch is
attached here.


The core modules Locale::Country, Locale::Language, and Locale::Currency
(all part of the Locale-Codes distribution) should be updated on a
regular basis. They contain "codes" from various internet standards
which change over time.

I plan on releasing new versions at 4 times a year to keep the codes
up-to-date. At this point, I'm not planning on any significant code
changes (other than bug fixes), so the only significant changes between
releases should be to update the codes.

Taint more operands with case changes

 The documentation says that Perl taints certain operations when subject
 to locale rules, such as lc() and ucfirst().  Prior to this commit
 there were exceptions when the operand to these functions contained no
 characters whose case change actually varied depending on the locale,
 for example the empty string or above-Latin1 code points.  Changing to
 conform to the documentation simplifies the core code, and yields more
 consistent results.

Android hints: set targetsh to /system/bin/sh

Android, for reasons best known to itself, doesn't have a "/bin/sh" it
has a "/system/bin/sh".  We need to run "/bin/sh" as $sh inside
./Configure on the host, but store a different path for use on the
actual Android system (eg by backticks, system etc, in SH_PATH).

The new variable is "targetsh" and defaults to "sh" unless changed by the hints file/Configure params.

Make fileify handle node specifications better.

In particular, a node specification containing only a single
directory (i.e., node::dev:[dir]) was not being handled properly.

This came up while reproducing the problem in [perl #121002] but
was not the cause of that problem as the OP's directory had
multiple subdirectories in it.

In vms.c's Perl_opendir, skip access check on remotes.

As reported in [perl #121002], the homegrown opendir has been
failing when the directory specification contains a DECNet node
specification indicating the directory to be accessed is on a
remote node.  The OP reports this worked with Perl 5.001 but not
5.8.6 or 5.18.2.

It appears that the culprit was the introduction of access
checking to Perl_opendir in 61bb59065bf1b12edab39b12, which would
first have been released in 5.004.  Yes, it's been broken for 17

The reason access checking broke remote access is that it's based
on SYS$CHECK_ACCESS, which apparently does not work on remotes,
though the only hint of that in its documentation is that the
status SS$_UNSUPPORTED, "Operations on remote object are not
supported" is listed as a possible return value.  What it actually
returns, despite the documentation, is SS$_INVFILFOROP, "invalid
file specification for operation."

The fix is simple enough -- just skip the access check if the
directory name contains a node specification (which always ends
with "::").  All the access check is providing is a friendlier
error message in cases where we don't have access, so no harm is
done by skipping the check in cases where it can't work.

Allow 'use locale' on systems without locales.

Instead of throwing an error, just go ahead and do the import.
This will tell Perl internally to use the current underlying locale,
which should be the C locale.  Attempts to change the locale will fail.

This differs slightly from Brian Fraser's patch, in that his didn't
touch $^H, thus 'use locale' was a no-op.  He has told me to apply this
one, which does affect $^H.  The advantage here is that now programs
that are run on platforms with and without locales will behave
similarly, and should run identically if the locale is not switched from
the default.
