http://search.cpan.org/dist/perl-5.16.2/MANIFEST lists a perldelta.pod, so whatever tarball he downloaded wasn't complete

    The OP says it is missing, I cannot examine his filesystem.

    Seems unlikely that a broken download would result in a good compile and a single missing file; but maybe he looked in the wrong place.

    I agree, perldelta.pod comes with the tarball; it isn't generated automatically. Something is wrong with the tarball or an incomplete extraction if that file is missing.
