I was thinking more along the lines of you could steal the initialisation code from it to add to your XS wrapper of the C library you are trying to access.

However, you should also be able to compile it with CPAN or manually without difficulty.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?

    I probably can compile it, I probably could fix it if I had to. It would be perfect except for the ActiveState unavailability, so if I list it as a pre-req, my module won't build on ActiveState's system. I see the author of Math::Int64 has made 4 devel version releases since the last stable release. ActiveState's packager doesn't build or see devel releases though. To embed it without using its C api (not create a pre-req), the entire thing would have to be copy pasted because of its operator overloading.
      Have you considering asking Math::Int64 author to solve those issues?
        Are you the author?
