with perl5? [y]

Your system wants malloc to return 'void *', it would
Your system uses void free(), it would seem.

Checking out function prototypes...
Your C compiler doesn't seem to understand function

Configure​: FATAL ERROR​:
This version of perl5 can only be compiled by a
compiler that
understands function prototypes. Unfortunately, your
C compiler
doesn't seem to understand them. Sorry about that.

If you would like to help in that effort, please
contact <perlbug@​>.

Aborting Configure now.

i cld not understand the reason of this abort, all
help is appreciated ...
