WTF is wml doing building its own perl library? That is Wrong, Evil
and Bad (tm).

The problem is that perl as part of wml has been misbuilt somehow. My
guess is something is playing games with the namespace cleanup that
occured between 5.004 & 5.005.
The correct fix is to use the existing perl environment and link
against libperl.a. Of course, the *really* correct fix is for
perl5.005 to provide a libperl.so.
