Hi Fellow Perlers I'm trying to find suidperl for solaris. I tried compiling perl 5.6.0 from scratch and no suidperl executable.

    i cannot say for sure as i have never used suidperl myself (in fact, i previously had never even heard of it), but after poking around the 5.6.0 source a bit with grep, it looks like the way to build suidperl is to pass "-d dosuid" to the Configure script.

    The interactive configuration for 5.6.0 should ask about that. I do remember there were multiple questions addressing suid issues.
