This looks like some similar problem I had on ia64-hpux, where native ld
does not understand -soname.
But wait, questions came up while reading your errormessage thrice:
Seems that your /usr/bin/libtool does not understand -soname ?
Didn't you have libtool-1.5.22 emerged just before to eprefix ?
Shouldn't this be passed to linker using -Wl, rather than libtool ?


libperl-5.8.7.ebuild assumes using GNU ld if userland != Darwin,
applying a patch called "${PN}-create-libperl-soname.patch".
Do you have userland set to Darwin ?

I'm not sure how to decide when to apply this patch, in libperl-5.8.7 it
was done for non-Darwin userland only: 
   use userland_Darwin || epatch ${FILESDIR}/${PN}-create-libperl-soname.patch

On ia64-hpux i'm doing this based on CHOST now (will work for hppa-hpux
too), but IMHO this nothing but a quick-hack:
    ( use userland_Darwin || [[ ${CHOST} = *-*-hpux* ]] ) ||
        epatch ${FILESDIR}/${PN}-create-libperl-soname.patch

Maybe I should do with 'use ia64-hpux' ?

Same problem applies for perl itself lateron.

Maybe we should introduce another global use-flags both for GNU-as and
GNU-ld ?
Because there are some platform out there, where both GNU and native
as/ld will work, and others where only GNU as works, but GNU ld does
not, and others where none of the GNU binutils work.
