[ID 20000208.003] Not OK: perl v5.5.650 on ppc-linux-thread-multi2.2.14 (UNINSTALLED)
Message ID:
This is a build failure report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.27 running under perl v5.5.650.

[Please enter your report here]
Just the usual single failure:

# anydbm.t test 12 will fail when AnyDBM_File uses the combination of
# DB_File and Berkeley DB 2.4.10 (or greater). 
# You are using DB_File 1.72 and Berkeley DB 2.4.14
# Berkeley DB 2 from version 2.4.10 onwards does not allow null keys.
# This feature will be reenabled in a future version of Berkeley DB.
FAILED at test 12

No sign of the -lm or ICONV problems reported by Tom Christiansen.
(Maybe there's a problem with the patch?  I grabbed the full tarball.)
Configure found -lm, and HAS_ICONV and I_ICONV were properly defined.
The build was clean; no warnings, no problems.  One strange thing I
did notice is that the lib/thread wasn't run on this build with


lib/thread...........skipping test on this platform
