Every so often I install perl locally, using more or less the folllowing thread, minus the -Duseithreads bit.
Now I want to compile perl with threads, so the -Duseithreads bit is in there. But doesn't work. I've tried this a couple ways: -Dusethreads and -Duseithreads. It compiles, but when I try to use it with threads, it says I didn't compile it with threads. After like half an hour of churning.
What am I doing wrong? Am I not supposed to repeat the "-D" bit (right now I have it twice, once for specifying the local directory, once for the ithreads bit).
Also, is there a difference between -Dusethreads and -Duseithreads?
