    That's a warning, not an error. I'm not sure why your system is not allowing the make to proceed. The warning is expected since the variable is called Perl____notused. Could you post the full text of the installation session?


      its in the paste bin ....... its about 7000 lines ...
        OK, there's a problem with the compilation:
        # {standard input}: Assembler messages: # {standard input}:243482: Error: unrecognized symbol type "gnu_unique_o +bject" # {standard input}:243496: Error: unrecognized symbol type "gnu_unique_o +bject" # make: *** [Wx.o] Error 1
        This is likely due to a problem with your g++ installation based on what I read at, so please first upgrade/reinstall your local compiler suite. Next, rather than installing through CPAN, you might consider installing the source RPM or DEB, depending on your Linux.
