Yes, a fix is desired.  It appears evident to me (note: note a NetBSD user) that the best place to address this problem would be in appropriate .c and .h header files such as those that have already been cited by Karl Williamson in this ticket.

For many uses, however, we can get by with changes to the hints/ file included in the Perl 5 core distribution.  If you are not already familiar with that file, which is run as part of the configuration process, please take a look at it.

Thank you very much.
