Subject:   setuid under perl5?

I have a couple of scripts written in perl5 that need to edit some files
that are owned by root. I had intended to just setuid the script and go
with it, but no go.

I'm using Freebsd 2.1.5 and perl5 compiled straight out of
/usr/ports/lang/perl5 (ports-current).

The same script under perl4 works fine. *sigh* I just want to be able to
use some perl5 constructs in my script.

Any suggestions for correction and/or work around will be appreciated.
