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
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.
Just wanted to give my thoughts on the subject.
