Looking at the latest i386 bulk build, see this also when perl's built
as root. I wonder if 1. libtool is involved here and 2. if it's broken.

Than building perl-5.6  as a normal user (UID!=0)   I get this error:

after a su to root and make  this package compiles w/o errors	
while UID!=0 
cd to pkgsrc/lang/perl5-base  and  start the build process
