Where are you actually using a 5.10 feature?

Where lib/Automake/ says "use Time::HiRes qw(stat);". This does not work with Perl 5.6.

For why we bumped the version to 5.10, please see:

Please do not arbitrarily bump version requirements just to bump version 

That's not what was done here. The abovementioned URL says version requirements were bumped from 5.6 to 5.10 because the feature is not present in 5.6 (2000), is present in 5.10 (2007), and we lacked access to the museum pieces in the middle. If you are sure that a version number lower than 5.10 will do, please let us know.
