I'm actually having quite a bit of trouble using the "--with-perl" option 
on linux.  I keep getting a "can not find libperl" error, even though I 
compiled perl with a dynamic module and put it within the standard library 
path.  It would seem that most of the Postgresql community is confused with 
what "--with-perl" actually does.  I know I am.  Sorry I wasn't much of 
help, but you may not be alone on this one.  Best of luck.
