	DUH.ORG:  Pointing out the obvious since 1994.

From lang/perl5/

.if defined(PERL5_CONFIGURE) && !empty(PERL5_CONFIGURE:M[yY][eE][sS])
do-configure: perl5-configure

That ${DO_NADA} command results in the inability for anything .include'ing
this file to define its own "do-configure" rule.  (In general, .include'd
files should simply use a dependency like "do-configure: perl5-configure",
without any commands, to prevent interference with package-supplied rules.)
