Tom,

Again your help was excellent and on target.

I had gone through the fun and games of building a shared libperl.so, and
the plperl.so... but...

The LD_LIBRARY_PATH was the culprit.  As I'm running RedHat, by default it
does not create a /usr/local/bin, but I created one by hand, and then dumped
my libperl.so there... Well... This was not in the "/etc/ld.so.conf" file.
So I added the path, and ran the ldconfig and presto... Everything works
very well.

With Perl up and running I'm actually able to make PostgreSQL drive around
the block a few times.

Thank you again.

-Michael
