oh.  The configure script does something like this:

        perl -MExtUtils::Embed -e ldopts

to obtain the "-lperl".  That sounds as if perl can be installed to
report this, but lack the library...

This occurs on Debian Testing and the error goes away after installing
libperl-dev, which apparently just contains a symlink from
to the already-installed  I believe the setup is
fairly standard; practically all of the installed perl packages have
been pulled in as dependencies of other packages.

I can add a link-test to the configure script (it never occurred to me that this part would be inconsistent, and fail). thanks
