in reply to Building Perl 5.10 failure

You are missing the math library (-lm).

But WHY are you building such an ancient version? perl-5.16.3 is out. I see no reason to use 5.10.1.

    Personally I've got one version of each stable line from 5.6.x to 5.16.x for testing purposes. I do nearly all development on 5.16.2 though. (I haven't seen a compelling reason to go 5.16.3 given that 5.18.0 will be out Real Soon Now.)

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

      I have over 100 versions of perl on my laptop starting with perl1 and including all development releases. When you do so - like you - to test (your own) stuff, one might be expected to have enough experience to recognize build errors and fix them where appropriate. For all others, there is Devel::PatchPerl if one really needs a historic build for whatever purpose,

      The OP did not mention a single reason for building a perl so old.

      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
