Subject mod_perl compilation problem
Date Mon, 01 Sep 2008 02:55:42 GMT
I'm still trying to figure out how to build mod_perl on an AMD x86_64 system.  
It's running gcc 4.1.1 on Red Hat 4.1.1-52.  Perl 5.8.8 + Apache + mod_perl is 
already installed, but I wanted to try and build everything with 5.10 because 
I've read that the RedHat Perl binaries are sometimes very slow, and I want to 
check out some of the Perl 5.10 features on a new server.

I'm building Perl with these options:
Configure -de -Dprefix=/usr/local -Accflags="-fPIC"

Perl builds, tests, and seems to run fine.

When I make mod_perl, I get this error:

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.0/x86_64-linux/CORE/libperl.a(gv.o): 
relocation R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a 
shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.0/x86_64-linux/CORE/libperl.a: could not read 
symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

If I'm building Perl explicity with -fPIC, why does mod_perl think I'm not?

I suppose I can live with 5.8.8, but there should be a way to build this.
