# SYNOPSIS
#
#   AX_PROG_PERL_VERSION([VERSION],[ACTION-IF-TRUE],[ACTION-IF-FALSE])
#
# DESCRIPTION
#
#   Makes sure that perl supports the version indicated. If true the shell
#   commands in ACTION-IF-TRUE are executed. If not the shell commands in
#   ACTION-IF-FALSE are run. Note if $PERL is not set (for example by
#   running AC_CHECK_PROG or AC_PATH_PROG) the macro will fail.
#
#   Example:
#
#     AC_PATH_PROG([PERL],[perl])
#     AX_PROG_PERL_VERSION([5.8.0],[ ... ],[ ... ])
#
#   This will check to make sure that the perl you have supports at least
#   version 5.8.0.
#
#   NOTE: This macro uses the $PERL variable to perform the check.
#   AX_WITH_PERL can be used to set that variable prior to running this
#   macro. The $PERL_VERSION variable will be valorized with the detected
#   version.
