This is perl, version 5.005_02 built for PA-RISC1.1

Here's some info from config.log:

uname -m = 9000/782
uname -r = B.11.00
uname -s = HP-UX
uname -v = A

configure:2929: checking host system type
configure:2944: result: hppa2.0w-hp-hpux11.00

I'm building perl from source because autoconf says it wants perl 5.00503
and I've got 5.00502.  I'm also building perl from source to deal with
compiling some of my own modules that have C code.  I originally set things
up this way to handle problems on solaris where the compiler used to build
perl was no longer available so compiling some modules failed.  I tried the
PerlGcc module but didn't have any luck.
