I am compiling perl on my HPux machine.
see attached log file for error message.
SOS !!! Is there anyone can help me out???
(I see you are using the Korn shell. Some ksh's blow up on Configure,
Beginning of configuration questions for perl5.
Checking echo to see how to suppress newlines...
First let's make sure your kit is complete. Checking...
Would you like to see the instructions? [n]
Don't worry if any of the following aren't found...
Checking compatibility between /usr/bin/echo and builtin echo (if any)...
Symbolic links are supported.
Good, your tr supports [:lower:] and [:upper:] to convert case.
First time through, eh? I have some defaults handy for some systems
3b1 convexos dynixptx hpux isc_2 mpeix opus sco_2_3_2 ti1500 uts
You may give one or more space-separated answers, or "none" if appropriate.
Which of these apply, if any? [hpux]
Configure uses the operating system name and version to set some defaults.
Operating system name? [hpux]
Note that threading is a highly experimental feature, and
By default, perl5 will be installed in /opt/perl5.005_03/bin, manual
Installation prefix to use? (~name ok) [/opt/perl5.005_03]
There are some auxiliary files for perl5 that need to be put into a
Pathname where the private library files will reside? (~name ok) [/opt/perl5.005_03/lib/5.00503]
Where do you want to put the public architecture-dependent libraries? (~name ok) [/opt/perl5.005_03/lib/5.00503/PA-RISC2.0]
Congratulations. You aren't running Eunice.
It's not Xenix...
Nor is it Venix...
Some kernels have a bug that prevents setuid #! scripts from being
First let's decide if your kernel supports secure setuid #! scripts.
I don't think setuid scripts are secure (no /dev/fd directory).
Some systems have disabled setuid scripts, especially systems where
Do you want to do setuid/setgid emulation? [n]
Some systems have different model sizes. On most systems they are called
The default for most systems is "none".
Which memory models are supported? [none]
Hmm... Doesn't look like a MIPS system.
Now, how can we feed standard input to your C preprocessor...
Some systems have incompatible or broken versions of libraries. Among
Directories to use for library searches? [/usr/local/lib /lib/pa1.1 /lib /usr/lib /usr/ccs/lib]
What is the file extension used for shared libraries? [sl]
Some versions of Unix support shared libraries, which make executables smaller
On some systems, mostly System V Release 3's, the shared library is included
Any additional libraries? [-lnsl_s -lndbm -lmalloc -ldld -lm -lc -lndir -lcrypt]
What optimizer/debugger flag should be used? [-O]
To use no flags, specify the word "none".
Any additional cc flags? [-D_HPUX_SOURCE]
Your C linker may need flags. For this question you should
Make sure you include the appropriate -L/path flags if your C linker
Any additional ld flags (NOT including libraries)? [ -L/usr/local/lib]
Computing filename position in cpp output for #include directives...
Do you wish to attempt to use the malloc that comes with perl5? [y] Removing unneeded -lmalloc from library list
Your system wants malloc to return 'void *', it would seem.
Checking out function prototypes...
Configure: FATAL ERROR:
If GNU cc is available for your system, perhaps you could try that instead.
Eventually, we hope to support building Perl with pre-ANSI compilers.
Aborting Configure now.
