Backporting MakeMaker and PERL_HDRS
Message ID:
I've got MakeMaker split out into an independent module and working
stand-alone on 5.6.1.  I'm trying to backport to 5.005_03 and I'm
running into this:

PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/local/bin/perl5.00503 -Iblib/arch -Iblib/lib -e 'use Test::Harness qw(&runtests $verbose); $verbose=0; runtests @ARGV;' t/*.t
t/ExtUtils..........ok 2/27make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/local/perl5.005_03/lib/5.00503/ppc-linux/CORE/opnames.h', needed by `ExtTest.o'.  Stop.

This is from the PERL_HDRS target generated by perldepend().  All the
header files are hard-wired.  So a few questions...

1)  What exactly is PERL_HDRS there for?
2)  Is this really only for building the core?
3)  Could we just autogenerate that list from $(PERL_INC)/*.h ?
