You don't "need" a version of Perl with threading support patched in
these days. Interchange appears to work just fine either way.
Interchange, along with other Perl apps that don't use threads, will
just work approx. 25% slower with the ithreads patches in place.
Gentoo provides the following build options for Perl. Note the
[ Found these USE variables for dev-lang/perl-5.8.8-r2 ]
+ + berkdb : Adds support for sys-libs/db (Berkeley DB for MySQL)
- - build : !!internal use only!! DO NOT SET THIS FLAG YOURSELF!, used for creating build images and the first half of bootstrapping [make stage1]
- - debug : Enable extra debug codepaths, like asserts and extra output. If you want to get meaningful backtraces see http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/qa/backtraces.xml .
- - doc : Adds extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc)
+ + gdbm : Adds support for sys-libs/gdbm (GNU database libraries)
- - ithreads : Enable Perl threads, has some compatibility problems
- - perlsuid : Enable Perl SUID install. Has some risks associated.
