Subject: Problems installing sybperl-2.11
Date: Mar 27 2000 5:58PM

I'm having trouble installing sybperl-2.11 on a dec alpha
OSF V4.0 with perl5.00405. I have had no problem with 
sybperl-2.10. I've copied my CONFIG and PWD files f
rom the sybperl-2.10 dir to the sybperl-2.11 dir, and 
tried to do a perl Makefile.PL; make; make test in the s
ybperl-2.11 dir, but get the errors below. Using the
exact same shell and doing the same commands in the sybperl-2.10
dir returns no errors. So I've ruled out a SYBASE or 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH env problem, or a problem with the sybase
client libraries.

'make test' in the sybperl-2.11 dir returns the following error:

PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /projects/ -I.././blib/arch -I.././blib/lib -
