Thanks, I figured as much. Perl compilation broke with the following:

/perl installperl --destdir=
Can't load 'lib/auto/File/Glob/Glob.bundle' for module File::Glob:  
dlopen(lib/auto/File/Glob/Glob.bundle, 1): no suitable image found.   
Did find:
	lib/auto/File/Glob/Glob.bundle: mach-o, but wrong architecture at lib/ line 70.
  at lib/File/ line 96
Compilation failed in require at installperl line 132.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at installperl line 132.
make[1]: *** [install.perl] Error 2
make: *** [install] Error 2

Going to configure it and try again. Not sure if I screwed up one of  
the thousand options or not...
