I don't think it's correct to use literally "-L$(PERL_INC) -lperl",
although it might be in many installations.  The correct values should
obtained from "perl -V:<variable>", and I already provided the
variables that should be used here.  E.g., if the user has Active Perl
installed, like I do, the "-lperl" part should be replaced with
"-lperl520" (for Perl 5.20.X).

Moreover, on Posix hosts I'm not sure it's TRT to link against
libperl.a, as that's a static library, and Unix doesn't need import
libraries to link against shared libraries at run time.
