I think bioperl works now for perl 5.10. The only significant issue
we ran into were problems with Bio::SeqIO::entrezgene. The parser
looped and created a pseudohash under some conditions, which threw all
sorts of errors with 5.8. Stefan and I fixed that one in Subversion.
There were some odd Data::Dumper-related messages popping up with
'perl Build.PL' using perl 5.10; not sure what's going on there, but
it appears harmless:
Encountered CODE ref, using dummy placeholder at /opt/perl/lib/5.10.0/
darwin-2level/Data/Dumper.pm line 190.
