Subject: perl 5.6.0 doesn't install on NCR MP-RAS

I've successfully build several versions of perl on this
hardware and os, including 5.005_03, but 5.6.0 fails during the
make with the message:

    Making DynaLoader (static)
Writing Makefile for DynaLoader
mkdir ../../lib/auto/DynaLoader/
    ../../miniperl -I../../lib -I../../lib -I../../lib -
I../../lib DynaLoader_pm
    ../../miniperl -I../../lib -I../../lib -I../../lib -
I../../lib XSLoader_pm.P
cp ../../lib/
cp ../../lib/
AutoSplitting ../../lib/ (../../lib/auto/DynaLoader)

make: fatal error: don't know how to make .y (bu42).
*** Error code 1 (bu21)

make: fatal error.

I've done all of the easy stuff.  I've read the hints/svr4 file
(which always worked before) and followed the suggestions.  I've
taken defaults on everything important.  I've manually turned
off nm extraction (I think this is the  default now for svr4).
I've run Configure interactively and actually thought about most
of the answers.  I've turned off optimation and set
CRIPPLED_CC.  I've manually set LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  I've read all

make minitest fails for
op/regexp............FAILED at test 461
op/regexp_noamp......FAILED at test 461
and for the IO and IPC tests, as the extentions didn't build
(DynaLoader is the first).

My myconfig output is :

Please help.  I program in Perl every day, it is my favorite
language and I do NOT want to get behind in the versions!!
