Ok, I think thats the real problem.

The perl Configure script doesn't find a working dlopen, because it doesn't
check for a dlopen in libdl.

Hmmm, adding 'dl' to the LIBSWANTED.SunOS produced a shared library.

What is the downside when I add that?

And what about lang/perl5/patches/patch-ag which has a check for ($^O eq 'netbsd')
so this would only works on NetBSD but and not on SunOS.
