Installing Perl

     Unpack the Perl archive 
     Configure the package by running Configure 

You can stick to all the defaults, except to the following:

When asked What is the file extension used for shared libraries? [so] 

Answer with: none 

When asked Any additional ld flags (NOT including libraries)? 

Answer with: -L/usr/local/lib -static 

When asked Do you wish to use dynamic loading? [y] 

Answer with: n 

     Compile the package by running make 
     Copy the perl binary to $LFS/usr/bin


The only thing is that somehow extra modules have to be added to perl,
