Hmm... Then have you also tried the fix in the third posting on this thread?

    I've read that post my self but it seems to be related to informix. Still, in that regard a couple of follow up questions.
    what's a cfglgo? I don't have that file on my system.
    and what does the -b option do in the Makefile.

    My Makefile has the correct CC=/usr/local/bin/gcc in it, I don't want to edit the CCDFLAGS= line without knowing what the flags are for. The problem is I can't find any references to these flags anywhere. I could copy my Makefile in this post but it is about 33K of text.

      Yes it appears that the oher post was about Informix 4GL RDS (rapid development system), the program cfglgo is a script for compiling a new 4GL runner (fglgo) if you want to include user defined functions for instance. This will have nothing whatsoever to do with compiling perl.


        Which brings me back to my original problem, how do I compile PERL 5.8.8 on AIX 5.3?

[Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe setting $ENV{PERL5LIB}=" some path without dot"; perl Makefile.PL; make test already is enough to locally test your module...
[Corion]: Meh, no, will need a BEGIN hook...
[Corion]: ... and PERL5OPT does not like -e in it :-(
[Corion]: Ah. The magic invocation is set PERL5OPT=-M-lib=. (equivalent of no lib '.';
