in thread Installing Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX with Perl v5.8.8

I tried to install a new Perl in the home directory of the older machine. I did:

wget http://www.cpan.org/src/5.0/perl-5.26.1.tar.gz tar xzf perl-5.26.1.tar.gz cd perl-5.26.1 ./Configure -des -Dprefix=$HOME/localperl make

'make' generated a lot of (probably uninteresting) output, and eventually failed becasue of:

sv.o: In function `S_hextract': sv.c:(.text+0xe11): undefined reference to `Perl_fp_class_denorm' collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [lib/buildcustomize.pl] Error 1

What is going on?

    This report, blog post and finally this post are among the reports I could find matching this problem. Judging by the kernel version it looks like you're on a pretty old system, similar to these reports, and that the patch to fix the issue didn't quite make it into 5.26.1. I'll check your module installation issue later this morning.
