Now that I have played with it, here is how I got perl to compile 
against the glibc in /stage1 in Chapter 5:-)

perl_version=5.8.0 &&
glibc_version=2.3.1 &&
b_prefix=/stage1 &&
tar -xvzf perl-$perl_version.tar.gz &&
cd perl-$perl_version &&
./Configure -d -E -s -Doptimize="-O2 -pipe -w" \
-Dprefix=$b_prefix -Dldflags="-s" -Uinstallusrbinperl \
-Uusedl -Dlibpth=$b_prefix/lib &&
cp config.sh config.sh.orig &&
l=`find $b_prefix/lib -name "libc\-*.so" -type f` &&
sed -e "s@/usr/@$b_prefix/@g" -e "s:^libc=.*:libc=\'$l\':g" \
-e "s:^gnulibc_version=.*:gnulibc_version=\'$glibc_version\':g"\
config.sh.orig > config.sh &&
rm -f config.sh.orig &&
unset l &&
./Configure -d -e -r &&
make &&
make install &&
rm -rf $b_prefix/man &&
cd .. &&
rm -rf perl-$perl_version

dependencies using ld):
