[tex-live] tlmgr warning with perl 5.22.0

    Redundant argument in sprintf at
    /usr/local/opt/texlive/2015/bin/i386-freebsd/tlmgr line 3109.

As far as I can see, this is a bug in Perl 5.22.0.  For instance, the
Perl manual has this example:

    printf '<%*2$s>', "a", 6; # prints "<	  a>"

Perl 5.22.0, with -w, reports the same warning:
  Redundant argument in printf at /tmp/x.pl line 1.

But Both arguments are being used -- the a is the value, the 6 is the
field length.  I'll see if I can report it to Perl.
