[ID 20000224.003] Not OK: perl v5.5.660 on i86pc-solaris 2.7
Message ID:

This is a build failure report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.27 running under perl v5.5.660.

Two problemlets:

1) Configure picks up /opt/local/include/arpa/inet.h which
   redefines inet_ntoa to __inet_ntoa, but it does not pick
   up -lbind which defines this symbol. Workaround is to use
   -Dlibs as below.

   I remember seeing bug reports due to this on perl5porters
   several times. So I think adding this check would reduce
   the necessity to explain to people what causes a ./perl: fatal: relocation error: file ../lib/auto/Socket/ symbol __inet_ntoa: referenced symbol not found
2) t/op/numconvert.t punts because of the 32 bit/64 bit issue.
   A comment in t/op/numconvert.t that points to perldelta.pod
   "64-bit support" would make it easier for people like me
   to find out why it punts.
