I'd rather leave these for people more familiar with the build system and
libtool. (i don't really like libtool as I tried to fix some stuff with it
before) Of course, we'll have to wait for someone also interested in the perl
bindings and has incentive :)

people should be able to watch what the compiling and linking commands MakeMaker
generates and fix that with build.conf. one thing worth noted would be that
we should tell libtool to generate .${DLEXT} files, where DLEXT could be get from
perl's Config module.

as for now I'll probably use the Makefile.PL for myself and people who wants to
test now, as I feel more comfortable testing stuff with the blib thingy MakeMaker
does. and I could spend more time finishing the typemaps.
