It builds on a stock FreeBSD-4 (no ports) only because the system libperl
happens to be in an accessible directory. It fails on FreeBSD-4 with perl
installed from ports (an increasingly common scenario as the system perl
got further behind). The original poster reported it also failing on Linux.
Without a dynamic libperl it builds OK since ccdlflags doesn't appear in
ldopts in that case.
