Expect package not working on a Power PC machineby sri75 (Novice)

sri75 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need some help with debugging a problem I ran in to using the PERL EXPECT package. I downloaded the package Expect-1.18 from the CPAN website and installed in on a Linux Machine with a x86 processor. I was successfully able to compile and install the package. I wrote up a simple problem to test it was it worked as expected.
However when I attempted to do the same on a Linux machine with a PowerPC processor, I ran into a problem. Below is the simple program that I was using:
On the PPC machines, I noticed that the spawn cmd did go through as I was able to see an SSH session using the "netstat -a" cmd. However using debugs I noticed that for some reason the script was not receiving anything back from the command.
Does any one know how to fix this??
