perl for the DR800/DR1000?

Has anyone successfully cross-compiled perl for the Digital Readers? The arm config in perl-5.8.8/Cross seems to be significantly different from what the iRex/poky linux setup needs...

Answering my own question, to build miniperl successfully you need to:

1) replace the symlink for /bin/sh to point to /bin/bash instead of /bin/dash
2) use the older ssh-based ./Configure pointed at the running qemu

The second step might not be necessary in the future now that I've done the first and have a config.sh for the DR800...
