ExtUtils::CBuilder is a utility to portably build C code by invoking the
appropriate compilers and linkers. It provides a cross-platform way to build
Perl XS modules, which contain C code that needs to be built and dynamically
linked to Perl.
Though motivated by the Module::Build project, it may be useful for other
purposes as well. However, this module is not intended as a general interface
for all C building needs.
