AFAIK they don't really have the problem because they just don't
encourage direct C linking to add-on libs for things like
scm_make_u8_vector or gwrap_foo.  So they can just put .so's in
lib/perl* or lib/perl*/VERSION and not worry about it.

I presume that if you did try to create a C library that linked
against libperl which exported perl_do_something () for public use via
plain vanilla -L/-l linking, you'd have exactly the same problem.
