Father Chrysostomos [Fri, 21 Jan 2011 16:26:50 +0000 (08:26 -0800)]
[perl #81750] Perl 5.12: undef-as-hashref bug

The addition of the boolkeys op type in commit 867fa1e2d did not
account for the fact that rv2hv (%{}) can sometimes return undef
(%$undef with strict refs turned off).

When the boolkeys op is created (and the rv2hv becomes its kid), the
rv2hv is flagged with OPf_REF, meaning that it must return a hash, not
the contents.

Perl_softrefxv in pp.c checks for that flag. If it is set, it dies
with ‘Can't use an undefined value as a HASH reference’ for unde-
fined values.

This commit changes it to make an exception if rv2hv->op_next is a
boolkeys op. It also changes pp_boolkeys to account for undef.

No need for buildtoc to scan ext/, now that it runs after the build process.

Since 7eb47696deb9a734, buildtoc has been run as part of the build process,
hence it has all modules copied to lib/ from ext/ (dist/ and cpan/), where
its scan finds them.

Previously it was run by the committers as and when (and sometimes not often
enough), and the generated pod/perltoc.pod checked in. Hence it might be run
on a clean checkout, and so couldn't assume that everything would be in lib/

This scan of lib/ is why buildtoc can still pick up all the modules, despite
their migration to cpan/ and dist/, which it has no idea about.

Also, scanning lib/ rather than ext/ means that Pod for modules that are not
being installed on this platform won't be included, which makes for a more
