Building with perl 5.26 and over (v5.26.2 in my case), current source code produces such an error in various pieces of code:

> Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated here (and will be fatal in Perl 5.30), passed through in regex

This is fixed with the attached patch (which basically follows the indication of the error and escape the braces.
