[ID 20000227.002] Not OK: perl v5.5.660 on HP-UX 10.20 w/gcc 2.95.2
Message ID:

Unfortunately, Perl betas are becoming increasingly broken on
HP-UX 10.20 w/ gcc 2.95.2.  Two things of note:
1) There is no libnsl, but there are:
	-r-xr-xr-x   1 bin   bin   98304 Jun 10  1996 /usr/lib/libnsl_s.1
	-r--r--r--   1 bin   bin  116504 Jun 10  1996 /usr/lib/libnsl_s.a
	lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  sys      19 Jun 10  1996 /usr/lib/ ->
2) There is no /lib/pa20_64

(I see you are using the Korn shell.  Some ksh's blow up on Configure,
mainly on older exotic systems.  If yours does, try the Bourne shell instead.)

First let's make sure your kit is complete.  Checking...

Symbolic links are supported.
Good, your tr supports [:lower:] and [:upper:] to convert case.

Let me guess what the preprocessor flags are...
Any additional ld flags (NOT including libraries)?
[ -L/usr/local/lib -L/lib/pa1.1]  
Checking your choice of C compiler and flags for coherency...
I've tried to compile and run the following simple program:

#include <stdio.h>
int main() { printf("Ok\n"); exit(0); }

I used the command:

	gcc -g -D_HPUX_SOURCE -L/lib/pa20_64 -DUINT32_MAX_BROKEN -DDEBUGGING -fno-strict-aliasing -I/usr/local/include -o try -L/usr/local/lib -L/lib/pa1.1 try.c -lnsl -lndbm -lgdbm -ldb -lmalloc -ldld -lm -lc -lndir -lcrypt -lsec

and I got the following output:

/usr/ccs/bin/ld: Can't find library for -lnsl
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
I can't compile the test program.
You have a BIG problem.  Shall I abort Configure [y]  
Ok.  Stopping Configure.
