perl -V:libperl (libperl.a,, perl58.lib, etc) should always be 
in that location.

that is bogus.  why do they do that?

debian.  we could probably adjust to that broken layout, but personally 
would much rather see debian put libperl in the right place to prevent
future problems.  for example, if one were to install perl 5.8.0 with 
ithreads enabled, perl will install libperl into the place where 
Apache::Build is looking.  but the runtime linker may look in /usr/lib 
first, kaboom.
