Change 575 moved from using $exe_ext, $lib_ext, $obj_ext and $path_sep to
$_ext, $_a, $_o and $p_

http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/blame/HEAD:/x2p/Makefile.SH#l48

Problem is that we don't set p_ in config.sh.

Should we?

Right now, re-running Makefile.SH looses PATH_SEP from Makefile, because
it's set from $p_

Why did Configure move to these cryptic short names? Because Metaconfig did?
I don't find them self-descriptive, but I might be missing something.
