Umm, this may be a dumb question, but how can I tell in a hints file 
what version of perl is being built? Looking at the shell variables 
that are defined when the file is sourced, I can see nothing with the 
version number in it, except tmppwd -- and it's only there because of 
what I happened to call the top-level directory. Should I parse what I 
need out of patchlevel.h?
