About the C stuff, some valuable informations are found into #175370.

Why? There is no rationale reason for such a requirement.

Just two words: Good Luck ;)
I am interested if you find a solution which works for perl 5.6 and 5.8.
Note also that Debian perl 5.8 contains a backported upstream change which
make it act as 5.8.1 will to avoid the silly behavior of 5.8.
See #164717 and http://dev.perl.org/perl5/news/2003/perl581-RC2.html
