I struck the same problem on Win32 because the perl import library ($Config{libperl} is not linked in. On linux it doesn't matter, as linux is prepared to wait for symbol resolution until runtime (when the symbols are resolved by the perl shared object). But on Windows, and perhaps Apple also, all symbols need to be resolved at compile time. The fix (mentioned in id=38131) was to insert the following line of code into Build.PL's link_c() sub: push @linker_flags, $Config{archlib} . '/CORE/' . $Config{libperl} if $^O =~ /MSWin32/i; Perhaps, if there are other operating systems that also need to link to $Config{libperl}, the if{} condition in that amendment should be dropped. Although nix type operating systems don't need it, they shouldn't suffer from the inclusion of that linkage. Anyway, if the OP wants to check, just grab Math::GSL-0.08, find sub link_c in Build.PL and delete the 'if' condition from the end of that line of code. (The 'if' condition has been slightly rewritten as 'if is_windows()'.) Note: I'm assuming that "$Config{archlib} . '/CORE/' . $Config {libperl}" will find and link to your perl import library(... untested). Also, while you're trying to get things to work, I suggest you remove the line "$self->add_to_cleanup($c_file);" in Build.PL's process_swig sub. Otherwise, whenever you run './Build clean' you might have to reinstall the source, and re-edit any files you've amended. Cheers, Rob
