It's not very happy on a redhat 9 box:
$ perl -v
This is perl, v5.8.0 built for i386-linux-thread-multi
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

$ uname -a

+i686 i386 GNU/Linux
It DOES, however, work fine on a Redhat 7.x box with perl 5.6.1, with uname info:
Linux tuxYYY 2.4.18-26.7.xsmp #1 SMP Mon Feb 24 09:37:16 EST 2003 i68
