While OpenIndiana (OpenSolaris/Solaris) provide 32 and 64 bit libraries 
for building 64 bit applications.
However if you want to include bindings to Perl for example, the version 
shipped with OpenIndiana is 32bit including it libraries. So, if you 
want to include Perl support in a 64bit application, you need to build a 
64bit version of Perl before building your 64bit application.
Is there a way of including 64bit version of standard applications like 
Perl within OpenIndiana, so that building a 64bit version of PostgreSQL 
can utilise a standard 64 bit version of Perl, maybe in a /usr/bin64
