Do you mean something along the lines of:

use Config; BEGIN { die "You are socketless!\n" unless Config::config_vars(qw/d_socket/) eq 'define'; }

If you need really specific socket capabilities there is any number of fine-grained tests you could perform. Randomly cutting and pasting from perldoc Config gives things like

=over `d_getsbyname' From d_getsrvby.U: This variable conditionally defines the `HAS_GETSERVBYNAME' symbol, which indicates to the C program that the getservbyname() routine is available to look up services by their name. =cut

Is this what you were looking for?
