[ID 20010817.003] Error in setup perl5.005_03 in HP-UX 11.0
Message ID:
Your system wants malloc to return 'void *', it would seem.
Your system uses void free(), it would seem.

Checking out function prototypes...
Your C compiler doesn't seem to understand function prototypes.

Configure:  FATAL ERROR:
This version of perl5 can only be compiled by a compiler that
understands function prototypes.  Unfortunately, your C compiler
        cc -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=199506L -D_HPUX_SOURCE
doesn't seem to understand them.  Sorry about that.

If GNU cc is available for your system, perhaps you could try that instead.

Eventually, we hope to support building Perl with pre-ANSI compilers.
If you would like to help in that effort, please contact <>.

Aborting Configure now.
