  OK, using Ryan's patch from last week plus the installstyle echo, with 
only a 64-bit perl, everything is in /usr/lib64/perl5 and XML-Parser 
installs into /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl.  Looks good, apart from 
the libc=/lib/ issue in 'perl -V'.

  In all cases, the perl and XML-Parser testsuites completed ok.
