[ID 20001109.013] Test failure
Message ID:

To whom it may concern:

	I am attempting to build perl on my computer.  I am running Linux
7.0 and have run up against the following error while executing "make

lib/io_multihomed....Operation now in progress at lib/io_multihomed.t line
FAILED at test 6

This was the only test that failed.  Runninf "perl harness" provided the
following data:

Can't load '../lib/auto/IO/' for module IO: undefined
symbol: PL_svref_mutex at ../lib/ line 73.

Running "myconfig" gives the following data:

I already have perl on my machine, but I am attempting to enable thread
support, so I am rebuilding perl in its entirety.  If you can give me a
hand with this, I would certainly appreciate it.
