Sorry, I was really too tired when I wrote that and didn't pay attention
to what I'm doing.  Here's an actually tested version.

[AC_CACHE_CHECK([for Perl version $1 or later], [ax_cv_prog_perl_version],
    [AS_IF(["$PERL" -e 'require $1;' >/dev/null 2>&1],
 AS_IF([test x"$ax_cv_prog_perl_version" = xyes], [$2], [$3])])

It STILL does not work for me, though at least it is not a syntax error.

checking for perl... /usr/local/bin/perl
checking for Perl version 5.6.0 or later... no
configure: error: Sorry, your version of perl is too old
address@hidden:[~/zzz-1.2.3] $ perl -v

This is perl, v5.8.4 built for sun4-solaris-64int
(with 31 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

This is what I have in

AX_PROG_PERL_VERSION([$minimum_perl_version],[],[AC_MSG_ERROR([Sorry, your version of perl is too old]) ])
