 perl5b3 on apollo domain/os (almost :-)

I just grabbed perl5b3 and fired it up on HP/Apollo Domain/OS using
essentially the Configure-generated defaults.  

In order to do so, I had to remove the POSIX stuff from being included
I suppose due to Domain/OS lack of POSIXness (posixicity?).

Is this something that would make it unwise to upgrade to perl5 on this
admittedly dead o/s ?

I noticed that the t/lib/posix.t test has the nice sense to check for
POSIX being configured in, and punts gracefully as a result.  Maybe
the other tests below should do so too ???

Problems with Configure:
        shmat() found.
        and it returns (char *).
        Configure[4923]: /usr/include/sys/shm.h: cannot open

Changes to

        "Mailer-daemon" huh ? Sure, I understand why they called it that...
