Problems building PlRPC-0.2012

dave_aiello has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am having great difficulty building PlRPC-0.2012 and I wonder if anyone can see an obvious reason for it. My machine configuration is as follows:
  • RedHat 6.1
  • Perl 5.6.0 compiled from its source
  • pre-requisites for PlRPC-0.2012 (like Net::Daemon and Storable) already compiled successfully
Here is the output from "make test TEST_VERBOSE=1":

I decided I wanted this because I wanted to install Bundle::DBI and this was the only component that would not compile in a straight forward manner. It is not clear to me if I actually will need PlRPC, but I am trying to get an instance of Slash 1.0.9 running on a new box, and I don't really know yet.

I've spent several hours trying to read the innards of the module, searching the Web for previous postings, and trying a bunch of long-shot solutions. So far, I am frustrated.

Thanks for any help you can provide,

    I experienced the same problems with PlRPC on a Mandrake 7.1 box with Perl 5.6.0. I spent a few hours on it but decided there were bigger fish to fry.
