|Subject:||perl Makefile.PL core dumps|
% uname -a SunOS fury 5.8 Generic_108529-01 i86pc i386 i86pc % perl -v This is perl, version 5.005_03 built for i86pc-solaris % perl Makefile.PL running xml2-config...ok looking for -lxml2... yes Writing Makefile for XML::LibXML Segmentation Fault (core dumped) same also happens for Perl 5.8.1. If line 27 is removed from Makefile.PL (the XML::LibXML::Common element of PREREQ_PM), then it does not core dump. I then build the module, and all tests pass, except a bunch of warnings: Use of uninitialized value in subroutine entry at /files/share/home/curtis/build/perl/5.8.1/XML-LibXML-1.56/blib/lib/XML/LibXML.pm line 633. are generated. the line is: return $self->_toStringC14N( $comments, $xpath ); That probably should be filed as a separate bug, but I don't know if somehow it could be related to the module not building correctly due to the removal of the item from PREREQ_PM. I have not tried this on Solaris for sparc.
