[lfs-dev] perl-5.22 causes test failures

With the new version of perl in the book, 4 packages now generate 
failures: coreutils, m4, grep, and diffuils.  What I see is messages like:

094-coreutils-8.23:FAIL: test-update-copyright.sh
096-m4-1.4.17:FAIL: test-update-copyright.sh
099-grep-2.21:FAIL: test-update-copyright.sh
111-diffutils-3.3:FAIL: test-update-copyright.sh

I imagine that this is due to something built into autoconf or other 
support file used in multiple packages.  I really don't think it is 
worth mentioning in the book.  Upstream will fix it as new revisions are 
brought out.
