Apart from that, this has two deficiencies in my view:
(i) our 64-bit perl installs in /usr/lib instead of /usr/lib64,
as do all subsequent modules (tested with XML-Parser, which finds
libexpat from /usr/lib64, but installs its own (64-bit) Expat.so under
(ii) the defines for privlib, sitelib, vendorlib, archlib do not affect
what, or where, perl itself installs and therefore I regard them as
I agree that a 64-bit perl seems to be adequate on multilib (I'm sure
somebody will find an exotic 32-bit chroot example that needs a 32-bit
perl, but for normal use I'm happy unless anybody responds to my earlier
post on -chat).
Will reply, hopefully in a couple of hours, with a comparison of what
gets installed using Ryan's Configure patch with a 64-bit-only perl.
Note that perl -V continues to show libc as /lib/libc-2.3.90.so in all
of these variations, which looks messy but perhaps won't cause too many
problems down the line [ I'd still prefer to fix that, but my current
spells are too weak ].
