Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.20.1, Package name: perl-5.20.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Perl is a general-purpose programming language originally developed
for text manipulation and now used for a wide range of tasks including
system administration, web development, network programming, GUI
development, and more. The language is intended to be practical (easy
to use, efficient, complete) rather than beautiful (tiny, elegant,
minimal). Its major features are that it's easy to use, supports both
procedural and object-oriented (OO) programming, has powerful built-in
support for text processing, and has one of the world's most impressive
collections of third-party modules.

Log message:
Due to directory style layout change, Haiku's SYSLIBPATH may not be
/boot/common/lib.
Undef it for Haiku and COMPILER_LIB_DIRS instead (also for other platforms
not set here).
XXX: all platforms should be SYSLIBPATH=${COMPILER_LIB_DIRS}, or
XXX: _OPSYS_LIB_DIRS for such platforms should be fixed.
