[ID 20000410.009] Problem running t/lib/io_poll.t
Message ID:

I have a problem when running the test suite for perl 5.6.0.  In
the script t/lib/io_poll.t the following line seems to cause a hang

   my $dupout = IO::Handle->new_from_fd(fileno($stdout),"w");

When I comment out this line (and all lines that reference $dupout)
the test completes, albeit with errors.  Do you know why this is
happening and more importantly how to fix this?

Configure was run with most of the defaults except I did not use perl's
malloc and I did not use /usr/bin/nm to find functions.  Also, as configured,
the file SysV.c included '/usr/include/sys/shm.h' but did not include
'/usr/include/sys/sysmacros.h'.  This caused the linker to fail so I
included the sysmacros.h file.  The output of my config follows.
