FW: Makefile.PL core dump
Message ID:
Yesterday I upgraded Perl to 5.00503 on a test machine and I still got the dump. Am looking at upgrading on the
production system as soon as we can find a time slot. Here is the Perl info on the current production system.

> Use an unthreaded Perl.

The current Perl (and the upgrade) are installed from a Solaris Package distribution. Don't know if it's threaded or
not.  I'm assuming not, since I have seen several warnings about it.

Upgrade Perl (but not to 5.6.0).
Use an unthreaded Perl.

Dump your output from

  perl -V

to the list.
