Cannot compile perl - make step hangs

Cannot compile perl - make step hangs

Hello

I am trying to compile perl 5.8.3 on a K460 running HP-UX 11.11 64 bit and HP AnsiC B.11.11.08 and am using mostly all the defaults answers when executing the Configure script. I am having problems when I select to have a perl shared library libperl.sl built: the make process hangs when trying to use the miniperl file:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/apps/src/perl-5.8.3 ./miniperl -w -Ilib -MExporter -e '' || make minitest

Because of other consideration, using gcc as a compiler is not an option. I do not have this problem if I do not elect to have a perl shared library. I was able to successfully build perl on two other rp7400 servers running hp-ux 11.11. Any ideas?

Regards

Are there differences in the HP ANSI C package from this server compared to the other servers? If so, what are those differences?

In all cases the Ansi/C compiler was the same: B.11.11.08.

hi,

you could check the patch levels of make which you are using.
