        Right, that's what the `perl -MExtUtils::Embed -e ldopts`
does.  For example, on FreeBSD it produces:

  -Wl,-E  -L/usr/local/lib/usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i386-freebsd/auto/DynaLoader/DynaLoader.a -L/usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i386-freebsd/CORE -lperl -lm -lc -lcrypt
-liconv -lutil

        As long as perl's been installed correctly you just let the
ExtUtils::Embed module give what's apropriate for the platform\

        It seems to work on FreeBSD and (I believe) Linux.  Then again
its been linking against a static libperl.a rather than a shared

        I'm fairly sure that perl defaults to building a static
libperl.a unless you tell it otherwise.  And if it does, I'm pretty
sure that it adds the apropriate -R... flags to set the ld.so search
