Perl 5.8.1 on IRIX 5.3

Perl 5.8.1 on IRIX 5.3
Message ID:

here are two remarks regarding compilation on Perl 5.8.1 on IRIX 5.3:

- the -Olimit value for cc of 4000 is not enough for some source files.
4300 ensures that everything is optimized (but to be sure for future
versions, why not go to 5000 anyway?). This value is set (and should
thus be changed) in hints/

- Configure detects the presence of inttypes.h and thus sets I_INTTYPES
in config.h. However, there is a conflict when including both inttypes.h
and sys/types.h. After commenting out the I_INTTYPES define in config.h
things compile fine.
This I have seen with other software's configure as well with IRIX 5.3.
Maybe you can teach your configure script not to set I_INTTYPES on

Hope this helps.
