From ed_peschko@csgsystems.com

util.c​: line 2716​: syntax error near 'l'.

In short, there is a header problem on HP/UX. UV_MAX is defined as UINT64_MAX,
which then substitutes as​:

4294967295u l

which is a syntax error for egcs. Given that a) this causes errors for
compilation of perl using egcs on HP, and b) HP is not likely to change its
header files, and c) egcs may or may not change their compiler to support
this syntax, well, what's the best way to fix this?

(
  PS​: I don't have access to the HP boxes in question any more, I just needed
  to compile it once. And anyways, its causing problems with DBD​::Oracle too,
  since DBIXS.h uses
)

(PS​: yes, I've posted to the egcs list about the problem..)

Wait for 5.005_62.
