Summary: perl inline module generates broken C code

Well, this is actually because in perl-5.8.x, the <<EOF 'here-doc' quote-like
operator does interpolation by default, just like the "" or qq operator; 
ie. the \n in "My string: %s\n" is changed into a literal new line character 
in the Inline C source .

To turn off interpolation in the here-doc, instead of :
   use Inline C => <<EOT;
   use Inline C => <<'EOT';

With that modification, your testcase.pl program works fine on FC-4, FC-5,
RHEL-3, and RHEL-4.

I think the reason it worked with perl-5.8.0 in RHL-9, is that interpolation 
of here-document strings was broken (perhaps by UTF-8-ness) whereas now it
works as intended.
