[PATCH] microperl plus missing config vars
Message ID:
It all started so innocently... I wanted to get "./microperl -Ilib -V"
working in Tru64.  Which it wouldn't, since the ivsize et alia were all
wrong since Alphas are not Intels (though these days Intels are Alphas,
if you squint appropriately).

So now there's a Makefile.micro make target, patch_uconfig, that using
your current Perl patches up just a little so that there's
a slightly larger change of your non-x86 platform building a slightly
more functional (or a slighty less core-dumping) microperl.

But while doing that I found that I had back when submitted a slightly
broken Porting/  Now fixed, and missing config vars
sprinkled into various platform-specific config files.  ('undef' is
usually a safe bet for the d_xxx variables, for example.)
