Ok, I had an RHEL 3 WS box to play with, and it looks like the 
Object::Multiple was missing.  It is on SuSE of course.  If someone can 
give us temporary access to an AIX, HPUX, and others (OSX remote?) we 
should be able to have a "complete" set of missing modules.  I have an 
IRIX box in house, though I need to build a modern Perl for it (hint to 
SGI).  PAR should take care of this, and we will see if we can 
integrated this into v3.1.

Interestingly, it works nicely under Cygwin as well.  We will use PAR to 
try to generate a standalone binary for win32.
