( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks guys! The help is very much appreciated!

I've never dug into this part of the Perl beast until now, and I've found it rather hard to locate documentation outlining the building of the Perl executable. Is there a handy source of documents on this subject (read: a URL that I can give to the Unix dudes), or is this coming purely from experience and the READMEs?

Thanks some more,


Update: Whew, got it all sorted out. Thanks to Zaxo, I was able to confidently reassure the Unix guys (and their managers, so on and so forth) that the change would be a painless one. Perl was rebuilt and configured with the appropriate lib paths. Thanks again to everyone and their contributions!
