I have a newly installed Fedora 14 system that I'd like to install various perls on to test different modules. I've got 5.8.9 already and was trying to get 5.10: perlbrew install perl-5.10.1 That hums along until it fails with the following error:
Making all in ext/ODBM_File make all PERL_CORE=1 LIBPERL_A=libperl.a make[1]: Entering directory `/home/mpeters/perl5/perlbrew/build/perl-5 +.10.1/ext/ODBM_File' cc -c -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -fstack-protector -I/usr/local/incl +ude -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -O2 -DVERSION=\"1.07 +\" -DXS_VERSION=\"1.07\" -fPIC "-I../.."

Any thoughts about what I might be missing?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
