       ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap - make a bootstrap file for use by DynaLoader


       Mkbootstrap typically gets called from an extension Makefile.

       There is no *.bs file supplied with the extension. Instead a *_BS file
       which has code for the special cases, like posix for berkeley db on the

       This file will get parsed, and produce a maybe empty
       @DynaLoader::dl_resolve_using array for the current architecture.  That
       will be extended by $BSLOADLIBS, which was computed by
       ExtUtils::Liblist::ext(). If this array still is empty, we do nothing,
       else we write a .bs file with an @DynaLoader::dl_resolve_using array.

       The *_BS file can put some code into the generated *.bs file by placing
       it in $bscode. This is a handy 'escape' mechanism that may prove useful
       in complex situations.

       If @DynaLoader::dl_resolve_using contains -L* or -l* entries then
       Mkbootstrap will automatically add a dl_findfile() call to the
       generated *.bs file.
