Ah, this does work, thank you. As expected, it gets rid of the issues
related to SBDM_File. I used this to build perl:

$ sh Configure -des -Dusedevel -Dsysroot=$SYSROOT -Alibpth="/system/lib

I have a hunch that the majority of the remaining failures could be due to
MakeMaker's tests expecting Android's linker to behave more sanely than
it's wont to do.
