Teach bisect-runner.pl how to build perl back to perl-5.000.

It's unlikely that x86_64 Linux will ever be able to build extentions for
versions before e1666bf5602ae794 which upgraded MakeMaker to 3.7, although
there are still other problems at that commit which we don't (yet) work round.
The earliest released version that does build extensions is 5.002

For 5.002 we need to patch perl.c to avoid double calls to fclose() in the
-e handling code.
For 5.001 we need to force -Dusenm.
For 5.000 we need to patch Configure to allow spaces in -D, and to correctly
conclude that struct dirent does *not* contain a d_namlen member.
