Summary0003608: Tool incompatibilities with Perl 5.22.2-5

After an apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade (on 9/16), tools BED, DOONA, and uniscan have broken. These tools immediately throw an error when they are run; details below. I've not made any modifications to these tools, and all of them were working properly prior to the Perl 5.22.2-5 upgrade.

Steps To Reproduce

Run bed -s HTTP -t <any IP address>
error message: Can't locate object method "new" via package "bedmod::http" (perhaps you forgot to load "bedmod::http"?) at ./ line 43

Run doona -m IMAP -t <any IP address>
error message: Can't locate object method "new" via package "bedmod::imap" (perhaps you forgot to load "bedmod::imap"?) at ./ line 67

Run uniscan
error message: Can't locate Uniscan/ in @INC (you may need to install the Uniscan::Crawler module) (@INC contains: ./Uniscan /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.22.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.22.2 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl5/5.22 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.22 /usr/share/perl/5.22 /usr/local/lib/site_perl /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl-base) at ./ line 24.

After working with the DOONA developer, adding the following 2 lines at the top of /usr/share/doona/ will resolve the problem. Thanks, wireghoul!

use FindBin;
use lib $FindBin::Bin;

This fix also works with BED (adding the same lines at the top of /usr/share/bed/

If needed, I can provide the source to both programs

The above-listed fix does not work for the uniscan problem.

The following fix will resolve the uniscan issue. These changes need to be made to /usr/share/uniscan/

Remove line: use lib "./Uniscan";
Replace with the following lines:

use FindBin qw( $RealBin );
use lib $RealBin;

If needed, I can provide the source. Credits to member MMIROJV for the fix...thanks!

Thanks for the report.
In Perl 5.22.2-5, '.' has been removed from @INC by default.

I updated the three packages to fix this issue.

uniscan: version 6.3-0kali1
bed: version 0.5-1kali5
doona: version 1.0+git20160212-0kali1
