[ID 20000415.003] Not OK: perl v5.6.0 on i686-linux 2.2.13
Message ID:
This is a build failure report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.28 running under perl v5.6.0.

[Please enter your report here]

'make test' fails on 't/lib/ph.t' due to infinite recursion on
MSG_* and SOCK_* constants.

I'm running glibc-2.1, and lines like the following from

        MSG_DONTROUTE   = 0x04, /* Don't use local routing.  */

cause constructs like the following to be created by h2ph:

  eval 'sub MSG_DONTROUTE () { &MSG_DONTROUTE;}' unless defined(&MSG_DONTROUTE);

This causes 'make test' to recurse infinitely when it gets to
test 32, filling all available memory. 

After editing a temporary copy of bits/socket.h, changing the
lines like the above to read:

        MSG_DONTROUTE   = 0x04, /* Don't use local routing.  */
    #define MSG_DONTROUTE   0x04

and re-running h2ph on the temporary copy, 'make test' passes all

I couldn't grok h2ph enough to suggest a patch, but will attempt
to come up with something.

Thanks for all your hard work.
