Okay, I'm afraid I don't understand your question here. (By the lack of responses, I reckon you've confused others, too. :) If you are building perl for bundling with your product targetted to, say AIX, won't you implicitly get the correct for inclusion with the AIX build?

Re^2: (jptxs) Generate for distribution in a package?
by jptxs (Curate) on Apr 06, 2005 at 11:21 UTC seems to be more subtle than that. It makes distinctions between different shades of AIX (different kernel settings, paramters, compilers, etc.) that the larger software package we distribute does not. In other words, demands a greater level of specificty than any other part of our software package. So even if we generated a for each server we build on in our labs, that would not cover the diversity of servers our software may eventually be installed on. I hope that helps clarify.

    It's starting to seem that there is no solution other than a brute force one (genrating a great deal of possible files and putting them all in a directory structure that's addressed dynamically based on local configuration).
