This would have the advantage that the standard shlibdeps mechanisms
would work.

It does however cause problems if you include libperl.a in archlib/CORE
(since the default ldopts includes that directory before /usr/lib).

All that stuff comes from Config.pm, so shipping a shared binary won't
help.  You need to include Config.pm from the shared build in -base.
