$archname insufficient for multiple Linux installs?

 $archname insufficient for multiple Linux installs?

Hi all,

I'm wrestling with how to properly install and maintain several
architectures' worth of Perl into the same tree, thereby
sharing any non-architecture-dependent modules.  The specific
problem I'm having is that Configure gives me an $archname
of 'i586-linux' on a RedHat 5.2 (kernel 2.0.x, libc 2.0.x) box
*and* on a RedHat 6.0 (kernel 2.2.x, libc 2.1.x) box  (on two
hardware-identical machines differing only in OS).

In order for these two versions to coexist, I'm beginning
to think I'll need to set my own $archname manually (i586-linux-2.0?)
in order to get the architecture-dependent stuff working.  Is
that the right approach, or is there a more obvious solution?

didn't see anything about this in his draft.
