Perl 5.8.0 on AIX 5.1
Message ID:

I am trying to compile Perl 5.8.0 on AIX 5.1 using vac  My end
goal is to compile a threaded version to be used with apache2 and
mod_perl.  On the way there, I am just trying to get perl to pass all of
its tests.

I have been compiling it as follows:

./Configure -des -Dprefix=/opt/public/perl -Dlibpth='/lib /usr/lib
/usr/ccs/lib' -Ulocincpth -Uloclibpth -Uglibpth -Dcc=cc_r -Accflags='-F

The specification of the vac.cfg and the -U's are to make it not look
into our local stuff.

I am currently getting to failed tests:

lib/ExtUtils/t/Embed.................ld: 0706-004 Cannot find or read
export file: /opt/public/perl/lib/5.8.0/aix/CORE/perl.exp
        ld:accessx(): A file or directory in the path name does not
FAILED at test 1

lib/h2xs.............................#     Failed test (../lib/h2xs.t at
line 158)
#          got: 512
#     expected: 0
FAILED at test 3

The first one goes away if I actually install it, then do the "make
test" again.  But the second remains.

I've seen some helpful posts on the topic, but I still haven't gotten it
to test cleanly.  Can anyone point me to the mistake I am making?
