in thread CPAN install DBI-1.53

That's a very old version of gcc that was used to build that Perl (24 Oct 1999). What version of gcc are you using ? (Running 'gcc -v' will tell you.)

I'm not sure what's killing the process - the only thing that's not reported as a "warning" is the "invalid option: -fno-strict-aliasing", so maybe that's the culprit.

You could get rid of it with the following entry in the WriteMakefile() section of the DBI-1.53 Makefile.PL:
Then run 'make clean', 'perl Makefile.PL', 'make test', and 'make install'.
Perhaps then, the process will continue to completion for you.

    Thanks Rob I can only find this in the document :-(
    WriteMakefile( dbd_edit_mm_attribs(\%opts, { create_pp_tests => 1, }) );
    Do you mean remove this?
      Tried to instal another module and get this error as well: cc1: Invalid option `-fno-strict-aliasing' What could cause this?

        Am makeing some headway

        Have removed the -fno-strict-aliasing part of the Makefile so it now reads:


        Now I get: make: Fatal error in reader: Makefile, line 13: Unexpected end of line seen

      I think %opts, in the Makefile.PL, might simply need that amended CCFLAGS entry inserted (anywhere) into it so it looks like this:
      my %opts = ( CCFLAGS => '-D_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS -D_REENTRANT -D_LARGEFILE_S +OURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64', NAME => 'DBI', AUTHOR => 'Tim Bunce (', VERSION_FROM => '', ABSTRACT_FROM => '', PREREQ_PM => { "Test::Simple" => 0.40, Storable => 1, "File::Spec" + => 1 }, EXE_FILES => [ "dbiproxy$ext_pl", "dbiprof$ext_pl" ], DIR => [ ], dynamic_lib => { OTHERLDFLAGS => "$::opt_g" }, clean => { FILES=> "\$(DISTVNAME) Perl.xsi t/zv*_*.t" ." dbiproxy$ext_pl dbiprof$ext_pl dbitrace.log nd +test.prt" }, dist => { DIST_DEFAULT=> 'clean distcheck disttest tardist', PREOP => '$(MAKE) -f Makefile.old distdir', COMPRESS => 'gzip -v9', SUFFIX => 'gz', }, );
      If that doesn't help try getting a version of gcc that's at least recent enough to either understand or ignore '-fno-strict-aliasing'.
