-prebind on Mac OS X?
Message ID:
Is there some reason that Perl on Mac OS X doesn't prebind or tell
the dynamic loader not to prebind?  I see a bazillion messages in
system.log that look like:

  Apr 25 21:25:15 Nathan-Torkingtons-Computer /usr/libexec/fix_prebinding: /usr/local/perl5-8/bin/perl could not be launched prebound.
  Apr 25 21:25:15 Nathan-Torkingtons-Computer /usr/libexec/fix_prebinding: /usr/local/perl5-8/bin/perl couldn't be prebound in the past, and probably can't be prebound now.

I see from ld's manpage that we could add -prebind or -noprebind to
the ld options, but I'm unsure what the implications of these options
are.  Does it mean we can't move XS modules around?  Does it interfere
with upgrades of XS modules?

Yours in a sea of logged messages,
