[ID 20000410.012] Perl bug untarring on Solaris 7

I'm trying to install Perl 5.6.0 on Solaris 7.

When I untar perl I get the following

tar: cannot chown file perl-5.6.0/lib/locale.pm to uid 0 gid 1 : No such file or directory
tar: couldn't change access and modification times of perl-5.6.0/lib/locale.pm : No such file or directory
tar: cannot change mode of file perl-5.6.0/lib/locale.pm to 292 : No such file or directory


This later causes an error when doing make test under "pragma/locale".

Any suggestions as to why this happens and why that file doesn't seem
to untar?

Thanks,
Vince
