Subject: perlbrew install requires -Dusethreads
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 794b
Compiling perl-5.12.3 without any options resulted in undefined symbol errors (e.g. in Raw::Zlib when running cpan), until I compiled it with perlbew install perl-5.12.3 -Dusethreads It seems that perlbrew assumes threads in some places, but not in others, leading to an inconsistency which breaks Perl (maybe just 5.12?). Maybe perlbrew needs to -Dusethreads by default in some cases? Error: perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/perl/Ubuntu-10.10- x86_64/lib/perl5/x86_64-linux-gnu-thread- multi/auto/Compress/Raw/Zlib/ undefined symbol: Perl_Gthr_key_ptr zlib-dev is installed (1: pmvers App::perlbrew 0.15 perl -v This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi uname -a Linux 2.6.35-25-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP x86_64 GNU/Linux

That's not an issue with perlbrew itself but the module assumes to install on a threaded perl. You can pass any parameters to configure using the -D,-U,-A switches, in your case -Dusethreads which will build a threading enabled Perl.
