I often thought of rewritting it but never had the time. Would be somewhat 
useful because a while ago I made a "hint" to compile uClibc a bit like glibc 
is in www.linuxfromscratch.org. Aka in chroot where a limited set of static 
tools are avaible. This book doesn't include perl in the static tools but 
includes a awk interpreter. (Perl is only compiled later using the shared 
glibc libraries)

So in the hint, for now I'm forced to tell people to compile a static perl 
to build uClibc and later, recompile perl against shared uClibc.

Annoying ;)

Just wanted to give my thoughts on the subject.
