Note: <0.780.0 are also affected by "{" escaping issues, so they can be purged.

    dev-perl/App-perlbrew: Cleanup old in relation to bug #614670

    All these versions are affected both by '.' in @INC breakages
    and unescaped { in installed .pm files ( exposed by tests )
    Purging these in favour of a long stable version without { issues
    which will be easier to fix.
    ( Due to the nature of where the failure occurs, its going to be
    a substantial amount of effort to simply backport the fix for,
    as it affects runtime code, meaning -r1 bumps are necessary for all.
    Add to this the nature of the failure involves code fat-packing, and
    its all a bit terrible to maintain this ourselves.
    Package-Manager: Portage-2.3.6, Repoman-2.3.2

    dev-perl/App-perlbrew: Fix for '.' in @INC re bug #614670

    Upstream have patched this themselves, but a release is still
    pending, so their fix is backported verbatim.
