>>> Configuring source in /var/tmp/portage/perl-core/Unicode-Collate-1.190.0/work/Unicode-Collate-1.19 ...
 * Using ExtUtils::MakeMaker                                                       
 * perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/usr INSTALLDIRS=vendor INSTALLMAN3DIR=none DESTDIR=/var/tmp/portage/perl-core/Unicode-Collate-1.190.0/image/
Making header files for XS...                                                
do "mkheader" failed, '.' is no longer in @INC; did you mean do "./mkheader"? at Makefile.PL line 9.
mkheader: No such file or directory at Makefile.PL line 9.     

I suppose it's the classic, so you don't need me to grab the build logs from remote server.

sorry, not a dupe, just looks identical, and is identally problematic, and is named identically, and is produced by the same upstream author, and the reason its happening is the same.

Unicode-Collate should be provided by Perl 5.26, perl-core/ shouldn't be installed.

Will be looking to dekeyword this

    A proper fix will be employed, but nobody other than arch-and-~arch
    mixers should be using this now.
