+    <para os="p">This multilib wrapper makes it possible to build perl
+    extensions other then 64bit. The PERL_ARCH enviornment variable controls
+    which perl binary to execute. Some packages that may attempt to build
+    against perl will run <command>perl -V:cc</command> to get the command
+    that was used to build perl. If you're building a 32bit extension but you
+    only have a 64bit perl this is not desired. By setting PYTHON_ARCH=32 you
+    will beable to build the 32bit extension because
+    <command>perl -V:cc</command> will return the command used to build the
+    32bit perl installation.
