While working on merging Perl bindings changes for Subversion
1.0, i think i found the problem with our devel/p5-subversion
package.  Unfortunately, i do not know the best way to solve it.
I'd appreciate any help.

Subversion's Makefile.PL contains this:

        OTHERLDFLAGS => join(' ', $apr_ldflags, (map {"-L$_"} @ldpaths),
                             @ldmodules, '-lsvn_swig_perl-1',
                             `swig -perl -ldflags`),

which results in this in the Makefile:

OTHERLDFLAGS =  -L../.libs -L../../../libsvn_client/.libs -L../../../libsvn_delta/.libs -L../../../libsvn_fs/.libs -L../../../libsvn_ra/.libs -L../../../libsvn_repos/.libs -L../../../libsvn_wc/.libs -L../../../libsvn_diff/.libs -L../../../libsvn_subr/.libs -lsvn_client-1 -lsvn_delta-1 -lsvn_fs-1 -lsvn_ra-1 -lsvn_repos-1 -lsvn_wc-1 -lsvn_diff-1 -lsvn_subr-1 -lsvn_swig_perl-1 -L/usr/pkg/lib -lswigpl

But perl5/ clobbers OTHERLDFLAGS :(.

I can think of plenty of hacks, but no clean way to solve this.
I'm hoping someone who knows more about perl and/or pkgsrc can
