With perl 5.18, Perl's qw() syntax does no longer pass as a list.
  • for my $script qw( view rdiff ) { ...} is a syntax error
  • for my $script ( qw( view rdiff ) ) { ...} is correct in any version of Perl.
see: http://search.cpan.org/dist/perl-5.18.0/pod/perldelta.pod#qw(...)_can_no_longer_be_used_as_parentheses.

I guess that TargetRelease doesn't apply because tools./build.pl is not distributed, and I am not sure whether to assign this to BuildContrib or to core.
