Crypt::CBC Perl module 2.16 and earlier, when running in RandomIV mode, uses an initialization vector (IV) of 8 bytes, which results in weaker encryption when used with a cipher that requires a larger block size than 8 bytes, such as Rijndael.
Perl, please provide fixed ebuilds, thank you.
bumped to 2.17
arches, please test and mark stable, thanks
Stable on hppa & sparc (yeah i have an hppa box again).

I vote yes.
