Subject: Sybperl 2.0 Installation Problems.
Date: Dec 7 1995 4:46PM

     
     Hi everyone.
     
     Before I start humbly asking for your help in installing Sybperl; let 
     me just thank you in advance for any light you can shed on this 
     process.
     
     I am having a problem installing Sybperl2.0 on my AIX3.2.5 running 
     Perl 5.01. with the native C compiler that came with AIX (I also have 
     gcc but have not tried to use it yet.). 
     
     
     What happens is, I get a consistent problem on the "make" which is not 
     accounted for in the FAQ or the installation notes. what I get is 
 "0706-244 ERROR: No entry point or export symbols were found" (see bellow)
  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
     and then make quits.
     
     Here are the steps and some of the output:
     
        # perl Makefile.PL
        'dist' is not a known MakeMaker parameter name.
