Autosplit error while building POSIX

If I try building perl on a system without that same version of perl
already installed, I get the following warning while building ext/POSIX

	Making POSIX (dynamic)
Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lposix
Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lcposix
Can't locate auto/POSIX/autosplit.ix in @INC (@INC contains: ../../lib /opt/perl/lib/5.9.0/sun4-solaris /opt/perl/lib/5.9.0 /opt/perl/lib/site_perl/5.9.0/sun4-solaris /opt/perl/lib/site_perl/5.9.0 /opt/perl/lib/site_perl .) at ../../lib/AutoLoader.pm line 160.
 at POSIX.pm line 5
Writing Makefile for POSIX
cp POSIX.pod ../../lib/POSIX.pod
cp POSIX.pm ../../lib/POSIX.pm
AutoSplitting ../../lib/POSIX.pm (../../lib/auto/POSIX)

I'm not sure how long this one's been around.  I see it both in maintperl
and bleadperl.  I think it's due to MakeMaker trying to get the version
from POSIX.pm, and line 5 of POSIX.pm is C< use AutoLoader; >.
