in thread Can't install a modern Perl from source

Yes, I can recreate this problem at-will (following the same steps I mentioned above) and I don't think a distclean really matters if I'm downloading from source right? Here's my full configure output and my full make output. I'm not really sure what I should be looking for, but I'll keep trying. See anything useful?

    Turns out it was my GREP_OPTIONS environment variable. I had this in my .bashrc
    export GREP_OPTIONS="--exclude-from ~/.grep_excludes --color"
    Seems some files were accidentally matching my excludes rules and the color was throwing off something else. Removing that fixed everything up (except for a single failure in t/porting/exec-bit.t).

[erix]: grep is a program, not a regex-engine
[Tanktalus]: perldigious: I'm 20 years in, and I don't want to move ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, right, it searches files for a pattern. pcregrep is supposed to do the same thing with the addition of being able to search multiline.
[erix]: ah, pcregrep is a stanalone program?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: pcre stands for 'Perl Compatible Regular Expressions'.
[erix]: ok, ok, I thought you meant the engine
[perldigious]: Tanktalus: Ha, understandable, that does make it harder when you don't want to move. I assume you are looking at remote work from home jobs too?
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I'm looking at a lot of remote work - I've been working from home since 2002, so I know how to do the work from remote, I just need a new employer ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I wouldn't know how to get a script to do what the greps do in one line.
