Heh, well spotted!

Official maybe. But not very well supported..

"You can now build a really minimal perl called microperl.
Building microperl does not require even running Configure;
C<make -f Makefile.micro> should be enough.  Beware: microperl makes
many assumptions, some of which may be too bold; the resulting
executable may crash or otherwise misbehave in wondrous ways.
For careful hackers only."


"All this is experimental.  If you don't know what to do with microperl
you probably shouldn't.  Do not report bugs in microperl; fix the bugs."

Can't locate Config.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.7 .).

Summary of my perl5 (revision 5.0 version 8 subversion 0) configuration:

So it does work, but needs all the stuff in lib just like the miniperl
solution. The miniperl thing looks a better bet at this stage.

Keep'em coming dude! :-)
