It was a known problem with earlier (dev?) versions; I heard there was a
patch, which didn't make it for release 5.005_03, but I don't know
where it is, and I'd rather wait for the next release.
In fact, Solaris 7 seems to have problems with compilation of other
perl versions as well.
I wonder why the perl people haven't released a version that works
with Sol7, an important platform.

I had to revert to 5.005_02 on a 2.6 box, and mount it to the sol7 box.
