Hm. I'm not quite following the code in ExtUtils::Embed and
ExtUtils::Liblist, which is where INN is getting this stuff, but this
sounds quite a bit like Perl messed up during configure. This looks to me
like a Config.pm that says you should be using a link line that won't
actually work on your system.
Is this the stock Red Hat Perl? Did they manage to screw up even more
stuff? *wry grin*
