I now have /etc/rpm/macros.perl518-config with the contents
  %scl perl518
  %scl_package_override() %{expand: \
  %global __perl %_scl_root/usr/bin/perl \
  %global __perl_requires /usr/lib/rpm/perl.perl518-req \
  %global __perl_provides /usr/lib/rpm/perl.perl518-prov \
  %global __perllib_requires /usr/lib/rpm/perl.perl518-req \
  %global __perllib_provides /usr/lib/rpm/perl.perl518-prov \

It does not work. Most provides and requires are still just "perl".

I had seen that earlier, and just went back and read it more carefully,
but I don't see how you got from that to this. Googling
scl_package_override brought up some Fedora documentation[1], so I'm off
to see if it has any clues.

Thank you,
