need help with bizarre build failures on Solaris
Message ID:

We've filed this RT ticket:

When we build (a) with Sun Studio, (b) 64-bit, and (c) supply a vendorprefix
(or multiple paths in APPLLIB), we get segfaults during testing of EUMM,
Module::Build, and Test::Harness.

This build broke between 5.10.0 and 5.11.0, and is still broken in 5.12.2

I have been performing builds with this ./Configure, primarily:

  ./Configure -Dcc=cc -Dprefix=/opt/perl -Dvendorprefix=/opt/perl
  -Aldflags='-m64' -Accflags='-m64' -Dusedevel -de

The offending commit appears to be bdaf8c65d37b1e4fb9dee9eed906961f41184db9 --
something about TAP::Harness just blows up on a 64-bit suncc compiled Perl.

I'll continue to look into this, as right now this is blocking $Work from
upgrading, but this also seems like it is a blocker for 64-bit builds on
Solaris using Sun CC.  I would welcome any advice on building this without
error, and can provide a shell account on a suitable box for testing, if that
can help.
