hi there,

i just stumbled across some weird error message which did not exactly help
me out ;-)
i was compiling perl according to the cvs snapshot of lfs (which i rewrote
my profile for) and added some optimization options as proposed on
lfs-discuss and got the following output:

-------------------8<------------------------------------------------------

the corresponging snipplet of my profile is as follows:

-------------------8<------------------------------------------------------
<chroot dir="&LFS;">

[...]

  <package name="perl" version="5.6.0">
    <preconfigure>
      <unpack archive="&packages_dir;/perl-5.6.0.tar.gz">&builddir;</unpack>
    </preconfigure>
    <configure>
      <config dir="&builddir;/perl-5.6.0" param1="-Dprefix=/usr"
param2="-des" param3="-Doptimize='$CFLAGS'" param4="-Dusedl"
param5="-Uusemymalloc" param6="-Uusethreads" param7="-Uuseshrplib"
param8="-Ubincompat5005" >./Configure</config>
    </configure>
    <build>
      <make dir="&builddir;/perl-5.6.0" />
    </build>
    <install>
      <make_install dir="&builddir;/perl-5.6.0" />
    </install>
    <postinstall>
      <remove>&builddir;/perl-5.6.0</remove>
    </postinstall>
  </package>

i was also able to reproduce this when i tried to create a link but in a
directory which was not existent.

what's going on here? any ideas?

regards
nic.

ps: sorry for the rather long snipplets.
