The most likely cause of this is something went wrong back in Ch 5 Perl
where is says:

echo 'static_ext="IO re Fcntl"' >> hints/

Notice the "IO" ?

Rather than go back to Ch 5, it's probably easier for you to plow forward
and once the real Perl in Ch 6 is installed, reinstall the coreutils and run
the tests again. Shouldn't be a drama.

PS - are you reading a PDF version of the book?
