the perl installation is stock. it's just the redhat supplied RPMS.
nothing else has been changed. any tightening of security, control, etc.
would have been done by the package maintainer.

i have attached the output of env. the program still works, although the

i.e., the program produces output, but i don't know if it is complete.
