Re: [perl #33948] configure checking echo
Message ID:
Sorry, it does not work, I don't think there is a way, however, the message Configure displays saying there must not be a builtin echo when really there is no echo.exe should be changed. It is probably not a high priority, but Configure could use a little update. For instance, it includes sys/file.h instead of fcntl.h when sys/file.h in only a dummy that call fcntl.h anyway:

<sys/file.h> defines the O_* constants...
and you have the 3 argument form of open().
Using <string.h> instead of <strings.h>.
<sys/file.h> found.
We'll be including <sys/file.h>.
<fcntl.h> found.
We don't need to include <fcntl.h> if we include <sys/file.h>.
