    It would have been a "smart" thing for Perl to do, extra friendly for
    programmers, auto-configuring with a test at installation time of
    course. I doubt Perl does that but it wouldn't surprise me - it seems
    like quite a good idea - Perl scripts using the capability would even
    be portable :)
