Thanks for your help, I got perl compiled, but now I'm getting a weird error
trying to build glib, I'm going to try to figure that out and if I can't get it
sorted out I'll probably start another thread (I'm assuming, based on what you
said, that just blindly doing 'cvs update -A' would be a bad idea).

Again, thanks!
