Subject RE: [mp2] make error (alpha platform) - fails on link
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2006 05:18:52 GMT

Hi Philip,

I am way out of my depth here!

I checked the CCDLFLAGS for different perl's on different alphas (using perl
-V), including one that comes pre-built with the OS, and they are all the
same.  I also google'd for "CCDLFLAGS alpha" and it seems like other people
on alpha platforms have the same sorts of values, possibly also causing
problems porting various modules to the alpha(?).  I also looked at the
DBD::Oracle build, which worked - but even though it has the same value for
the flags in its Makefile, it doesn't get used anywhere.  

It may be realted to the fact I use the tru64 cc compiler, not gcc.

I'll try fiddling with as you suggested, but I am not sure
what to change it to

AFAIK, these are coming from Perl's ldflags

Is this something we need to account for in mod_perl2?

Or did the perl on your system get borked somehow ?

You can change this in
grep for ldflags
