regenerated ./Configure
Message ID:
The old Configure script would swear blind that cc -E - couldn't be
used as a preprocessor, which was far from ideal, so I've taken dist
3.0@70, panicked while packinit asked me questions I just don't
understand, and run metaconfig to spit out a new Configure file which
seems to understand more modern systems.

With this patch 1.010 builds on Linux/ppc and OS X 10.1.5.  Lots of
warnings happen, followed by segfaulting, but it's building.

On Linux/ppc:

richardc@mirth:~/perl1.010~% ./Configure -des -Dlibs="-lcrypt" ; make
[noise, lots of noise]

richardc@mirth:~/perl1.010~% ./perl -e 'print "Hello, world.\n";'
Corrupt malloc ptr 0x10035040 at 0x10035000
Corrupt malloc ptr 0x10035880 at 0x10035800
Corrupt malloc ptr 0x10035080 at 0x10035040
Corrupt malloc ptr 0x10036020 at 0x10036000
zsh: 25952 segmentation fault  ./perl -e 'print "Hello, world.\n";'

I'll see if by making some of compiler warnings go away helps this
gets any better.

ps.  Is there an anonymous CVS repository/rsync mirror I can use to
track dev with version? is currently very
quiet on the subject.
