This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.34 running under perl v5.9.0.

[Please enter your report here]

 perldoc -q permute
recomends Algorithm::Permute and has an example

               For even faster execution, you could do:

                  use Algorithm::Permute;
                  my @array = 'a'..'d';
                  Algorithm::Permute::permute {
                     print "next permutation: (@array)\n";
                  } @array;

I tried this using perl 5.9.0, and make test failed until
I added
      DEFINE          => "-DPERL_EXT",
to its Makefile.PL WriteMakefile section
to allow make test to start, but that terminates early with
make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 2

Since Algorithm::Permute does build and test ok in perl 5.8,
and it is in the perl FAQ, I thought that
this bug should be logged here, since 
untill it is resolved if the problem is with 
the .xs file in Algorithm::Permute
or something that has changed in perl 5.9.
