Hi everyone!

Once again I'm stucked (a little). ;-( Below is the output from make (package

I found the following e-mails:





After reading them I believe, that my problem is described best with the 
thread number 3. In fact, when starting the installation of perl I run 
the "Configure" script and accept most of its defaults. Especially those for 
path names.

Now "Policy.sh" (/sources/perl-5.8.8/Policy.sh) contains the following:

"# Installation prefixes.  Allow a Configure -D override.  You
# may wish to reinstall perl under a different prefix, perhaps
# in order to test a different configuration.
# For an explanation of the installation directories, see the
# INSTALL file section on "Installation Directories".
case "$prefix" in
'') prefix='/usr/local' ;;

Two questions:

1.) Can anyone tell me a good way to easily get perl right?
2.) What of these packages need a new installation:
	*) Perl-5.8.8
	*) Readline-5.1
	*) Zlib-1.2.3
	*) Autoconf-2.59

Kind regards,
