t/porting/libperl.t changes
Message ID:
The batch of caea674..31e62fa (reenables the test and fixes it in 
darwin, both x86 and ppc, all hail James Keenan for tireless testing
and patiently waiting by the ppc... and) adds a new feature:

(1) certain libc (or similar) symbols are expected to be present
(2) certain symbols are expected NOT to be present

The group (1) is more of a sanity check: "no socket() call anywhere? 
microperl, is that you?"

The group (2) is "you used gets()?  please die in purifying fire."

I also added tentative support for FreeBSD (so far had been only Linux 
and Darwin).  I don't trust that change much, since I did the work in 
guest VM and I had ... interesting times (*).  Once I got far enough
to try the test, the porting effort seemed rather trivial.  Testing
in a real FreeBSD box would be much appreciated.

(*) Mostly probably not Perl's fault.
