I'm not having much luck getting XML::Parser to work with expat. I've downloaded and installed expat version 2.0.0:
PATH=/usr/ccs/bin:$PATH # to add the correct "ar"
PATH=/local/gnu/bin:$PATH # add gcc to the path so configure can fin
/local/gnu/bin/make # run the right make -- the wrong make doe
+sn't understand '-phony'
That seems to have went well, leaving the appropriate files in /home/reliant/shaw/.local
Next, firing up CPAN, I did a get XML::Parser. (PREFIX and LIB are correctly set in MyConfig.PM)
I then edited the Makefile.PL to include:
$expat_libpath = '/home/reliant/shaw/.local/lib';
$expat_incpath = '/home/reliant/shaw/.local/include';
Back to CPAN, and make, test, and install seemed to have went well, leaving the various bits and pieces in the expected places.
So then I try and run a CGI script:
use CGI qw/:standard/;
use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser);
use lib ('/home/reliant/shaw/perlmodules');
use lib ('/home/reliant/shaw/perlmodules/sun4-solaris');
and it results in:

Well, I beg do to differ because I've verified that /home/reliant/shaw/perlmodules/sun4-solaris/auto/XML/Parser/Expat/Expat.so
exists, and is readable and executable by everyone.
Any thoughts, questions, comments or suggestions as to what I'm not doing right?
UPDATE: I should add I'm trying to do this on Solaris.
