DynaLoader problem on NCR SVR4 box
Message ID:
I've got mail from someone trying to get Dynamic Loading working on an NCR
SVR4 machine. He can get it to build without dynamic loading, see details

His system does seem to have dlopen -- Configure detects it, but when make
tries to build ext/DynaLoader he gets this cryptic message:

make: fatal error: don't know how to make .y (bu42).

Anyone encountered this one before?
