I am working on porting 5.9.3 to the MPE/iX (HP3000) operating system.
Included in 5.9.3 is the Compress::Zlib module with the zlib source. The
zlib source tests various defines, such as
# ifdef HAS_vsnprintf_void
# ifdef NO_vsnprintf
These are normally set by the configure script and Makefile included
with the download from zlib.org, but these are not included in the
zlib-src directory of Compress::Zlib.
When installing Compress::Zlib by itself, I can do this
but in trying to make the perl source build automatically for other
users, I don't know where I would put that statement, or if it's really
the right thing to do; since this may be an issue on other platforms, a
more general solution may be necessary.
