It seems this is only a problem on my $work box, the 64bit library path are
This is a fresh install but with the /home partition from the previous
11.10 installation which was the /home partition of a 11.04 installation
and so on.
This didn't make problems in the past but trying to build 5.14.2 has the
same problem, so it's not 5.16 specific.
I've tried to figure out what causes this but weren't successful so far.
Neither upgrading perlbrew, running Configure without it, uninstalling all
:i386 packages nor cleaning up .bashrc and .profile helped.
I'd appreciate if anyone with the required know-how could help me figure
out what's going on.
I'll be on IRC again tomorrow for the whole day (and night if needed). My
timezone is CEST.
