In the course of reviewing RT #45155 tonight, I had occasion to
configure and build perl (blead) with these arguments:

#####
sh ./Configure -des -Dusedevel -Dprefix=/home/jkeenan/tmp
-Duserelocatableinc
#####

I did not install this Perl.  When I inspected config.sh, I got these
values for the four keys mentioned above:

#####
$  grep -nE '(startperl|installbin|installprefix|perlpath)' config.sh |
grep -v installprefixexp
749:installbin='/home/jkeenan/tmp/bin'
754:installprefix='/home/jkeenan/tmp'
886:perlpath='/home/jkeenan/tmp/bin/perl5.19.1'
998:startperl='#!/home/jkeenan/tmp/bin/perl5.19.1'
#####

Is this consistent with your bug report?  (Doesn't appear to be
consistent to me, but I've never actually used 'userelocatableinc'.)

Thank you very much.
Jim Keenan
