Perl's a bitch (and then you die .-)

Serious: perl will probably install different sets of files on platforms
which support dynamic loading vs. ones withoug DL, plus possibly another
set on a.out vs. ELF. All this needs checking.

Simply doing a "find ... -newer ..." on one platform is not enough,
