ack is a grep-like program with optimizations for searching through large
trees of source code.

Key improvements include:

    * Defaults to only searching program source code
    * Defaults to recursively searching directories
    * Ignores blib directories.
    * Ignores source code control directories, like CVS, .svn and _darcs.
    * Uses Perl regular expressions
    * Highlights matched text

Change the way Perl modules are installed, update the default Perl to 5.18.

Before, we had:

  site_perl :           lib/perl5/site_perl/5.18
  site_perl/perl_arch : lib/perl5/site_perl/5.18/mach
  perl_man3 :           lib/perl5/5.18/man/man3

Now we have:

  site_perl : lib/perl5/site_perl
  site_arch : lib/perl5/site_perl/mach/5.18
  perl_man3 : lib/perl5/site_perl/man/man3

Modules without any .so will be installed at the same place regardless of the

ack is a tool like grep, designed for programmers with large trees of
heterogeneous source code.

ack is written purely in Perl, and takes advantage of the power of
Perl's regular expressions
