[ID 19991111.001] Problem while installing perl5 on HPUX 10.2
Message ID:
On giving cmd sh Configure, at one point it goes like
this and aborts 

Do you wish to attempt to use the malloc that comes
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
        cc -D_HPUX_SOURCE
doesn't seem to understand them.  Sorry about that.

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

Aborting Configure now.

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