Perl error

second try. the first with attached logfiles (194kb) seems to hang 
arround somewhere since 3 hours now. if anybody wants to help me, please 
send a mail and i'll send you the logfiles.

* * *

i've finished chapter 6. had to adjust some of my scripts, but no 
problems except the GMP issue with ABI=32 and perl.

i now reformatted the partition to run the scripts unattended and had to 
learn the perl issue is not rally fixed.

about 3 out of 4 runs fail. i've actually no idea why.

i just run configure and make, then remove the source-tree and restart 
with extracting the tarball.

the config produces always the same logfile.

but the make differs:

whenever the make fails, i have no "finding dependencies..." in the log, 
the job starts with compiling. successfull makes seem to run something 
like a "make depend" first.

to be able to have at least 1 of 4 runs with success i had to patch a 

  sed -i -e "s at BUILD_ZLIB\s*=\s*True at BUILD_ZLIB = False@" \
          -e "s at INCLUDE\s*=\s*./zlib-src at INCLUDE = /usr/include@" \
      -e "s at LIB\s*=\s*./zlib-src at LIB = /usr/lib@" \

# to get nm -D, without -D configure
# can't find any symbols in
   sed -i -e "s at nm -u at nm -D -u@" \

# Dusedl waits for input thus pipeing the
# path is required to run the script unattended
   echo ext/DynaLoader/dl_dlopen.xs >_t
   ./Configure -des \
     -Dprefix=/usr \
     -Dvendorprefix=/usr \
     -Dman1dir=/usr/man/man1 \
     -Dman3dir=/usr/man/man3 \
     -Dpager="/usr/bin/less -isR" \
     -Dusedl <_t

# with a little help from google i got the following
   sed -i -e "s at libs\s*=@libs = -lnsl -ldl -lm -lcrypt -lutil -lpthread 
-lc@" \
          -e "s at perllibs\s*=@perllibs = -lnsl -ldl -lm -lcrypt -lutil 
-lpthread -lc@" \

   make test

even when the make is sucessfull i get 3 failures in the make test.

i now have installed perl ignoring the errors in the test. i will run 
the rest of chapter 6, going on building the kernel and makeing the 
system bootable.

any help welcome!!!

thanks in advance
