While running configure, it shows several errors and stops waiting for 
<CR>. If I hit <CR>, it will finish the configure. Then I can compile 
perl and use it w/o any apparent errors.

This is reproducible every time with the following commands:

tar jxvf /usr/portage/distfiles/perl-5.8.7.tar.bz2
cd perl-5.8.7/
./Configure -des

These are the last few lines of output before Configure stops:
