That's total BS. The version of OC is totally irrelevant to the
version of perl that you are using. Unfortunately I don't have any
documentation, apart from what I'm going to write here:
I can build sybperl here interchangeably with OC 10.0.3, 11.1 and
11.1.1 with perl 5.004_04 or perl 5.005_02 with absolutely no
problems. I could probably build a copy with OC 4.x if I still had
that lying around...
I would suggest that if you have about 30 minutes you get perl
5.004_04 or 5.005_02, and build it in your home directory.
Then build sybperl with that copy of perl, and see if all is well. I
very much doubt that you're going to hit any snags due to the version
of OC vs. the version of perl.
