uselongdouble on Solaris
Message ID:

I've thought a little about the best way to change for
uselongdouble. With my latest change, uselongdouble.cbu is not
called before the compiler is selected, but only after the question
about long doubles is asked.

This make things a little problematic - the variables for
libraries have already been set, the libraries searched. Right now
I'm fixing up d_sqrtl, libs, ldflags, and lddlflags.

Things would be easier if this paragraph of Configure would be moved
before the section that checks the user-specified libraries. It would
be more logical to ask the 64 bit questions and the long double question
before the library question to be able to insert more system library
pathes for both.

Waddaya think?

PS: It just occurred to me - *can* a 5.7.0 perl with 64 bit ints
    and/or long doubles be binary compatible with a 5.005 XS?
PPS: I'm still testing with my patch.
