Yes, but we're talking about what is *supposed* to be the same source 

As I understand it, anything linked against the libperl.so would 
continue working so long as they aren't calling some now-non-existent 
function.  Am I understanding the shared object files correctly?

If so, wouldn't one of the RHerl patches have to remove a function for 
this to cause breakage?

Yes some ifdefs would remove functions, but we were going to use the 
SRPM, which should mean getting the same configure options, right?

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a
desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
