The perl that I have installed(compiled by me) perl_eval_pv is defined in
embed.h under an #ifdef to eval_pv(there is also a comment about this

#if !defined(PERL_CORE) && !defined(PERL_NOCOMPAT) && !defined(PERL_BINCOMPAT_5005)

/* Compatibility for various misnamed functions.  All functions
   in the API that begin with "perl_" (not "Perl_") take an explicit
   interpreter context pointer.
   The following are not like that, but since they had a "perl_"
   prefix in previous versions, we provide compatibility macros.

For some reason I belive that one of those(PERL_CORE, PERL_NOCOMPAT, 
is defined so perl_eval_pv remains undefined. I'll try tonight to build
gimp CVS again and I'll make some debugging on this.

Just seen a few days ago 5.005_62 on CPAN. Does this version fixes the Carp.pm stuff?
