It's no longer needed. 5.00502 now has a configure test for union semun.

I just did an out-of-box compile and these were the test results:

Failed Test  Status Wstat Total Fail  Failed  List of failed
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
lib/anydbm.t                 12    1   8.33%  12
lib/ipc_sysv.t    0    11    ??   ??       %  ??
2 tests skipped, plus 14 subtests skipped.
Failed 2/186 test scripts, 98.92% okay. 1/6495 subtests failed, 99.98%
okay.
zsh: exit 29    ./perl harness

I know what's going on with IPC, and I'm guessing the DBM test is failing
because of a bug in the libc.
