5.29.1. Installation of Perl

Prepare Perl for compilation:

sh Configure -des -Dprefix=/tools -Dlibs=-lm

Build the package:


Although Perl comes with a test suite, it would be better to wait until it is installed in the next chapter.

Only a few of the utilities and libraries need to be installed at this time:

cp -v perl cpan/podlators/pod2man /tools/bin
mkdir -pv /tools/lib/perl5/5.22.1
cp -Rv lib/* /tools/lib/perl5/5.22.1

Details on this package are located in Section 6.41.2, “Contents of Perl.”
