when manually compiling perl using the Configure script ive found that it 
complains that file-name globbing might be broken without tcsh
i dont think this is a BLFS issue

tcsh is another shell - and quite a few programs out there can make use of it 

tcsh can be downloaded from:
        ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/unix/shells/tcsh/
        ftp://ftp.gw.com/pub/unix/tcsh/
        ftp://ftp.astron.com/pub/tcsh/

current version is 6.11.00 released on 02 September 2001

required installation commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-curses \
    --bindir=/bin &&
make &&
make install &&
ln -sf tcsh /bin/csh

ive checked this over and it all worked

it should be placed in the book somewhere before perl - im afraid i dont know 
what the compile-time deps are but im going to try to find the earliest point 
in chapter 6 that tcsh can be successfully compiled

tcsh compiles successfully with GCC2.x & GCC3.x
