Hi All,

so this is busted on FBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD.

mainly b/c it can't handle this format:

stdio.h:void clearerr(FILE *)

There are other issues too.  So I was reading the archives.  There are 
6,278 messages relating mainly in 2001-2 involving Stas, Doug, and Gerald.

It apparently can't parse apreq declarations, but it looks like Gerald 
created ExtUtils::XSBuilder::ParseSource and is somehow sharing mp2 code 
with embedperl.

Looking at the code, egad, not one of our stronger points.  I'm half 
tempted to rewrite it.

Where exactly did this leave off ?

Why don't we do something similiar to
perldoc perlop
  / "lex"-like

Also, libapreq2 seems to be using ExtUtils::XSBuilder just fine.  Could 
we re-use it ?

I never had a dream come true
'Til the day that I found you.
Even though I pretend that I've moved on
You'll always be my baby.
I never found the words to say
You're the one I think about each day
And I know no matter where life takes me to
A part of me will always be...
A part of me will always be with you.
