Re: File::Glob depends on itself.
Message ID:
Perhaps Configure should have the smarts to know that File::Glob
is not an optional extension unless -DPERL_INTERNAL_GLOB is set?
Possibly by adding that to ccflags if you don't include the
extension?  Otherwise, you've just re-discovered why it's
normally built with miniperl (which uses op_mini rather than op,
in order to ensure that -DPERL_INTERNAL_GLOB was specified).

Jarkko, is there some way short of doing all this through
double-bouncing through unreliable firewalls and my home machine
(so that I can use p4 & ssh) to see your metaconfig units?  This
is the sort of thing I'd happily patch at that level, but I don't
trust myself to do dist's job "by hand" for producing Configure
patches directly.
