perl 5.8.0

[ #9526 ]

I installed perl 5.8 on my Mac OS X 10.2 server box. Installed it into /usr/local/. Worked great, except I get annoying errors from cc about changing the library path order, and I have issues with XS (I included /Library/Perl in my path); I needed to make sure those XS modules were not loaded by accident while installing the others (for awhile I temporarily moved /Library/Perl while running perl -MCPAN -eshell to install other stuff).

    Those errors are just warnings. IIRC, Jarkko has fixed them in bleedperl. I also recommend that you not include /Library/Perl in your path. Nor /System/Library/Perl nor /sw/lib. You'll find dylib errors (and madness) that way!

      Yes, I meant warnings. I safely ignored them, they were just annoying.

      I also recommend that you not include /Library/Perl in your path. Nor /System/Library/Perl nor /sw/lib. You'll find dylib errors (and madness) that way!

      Yes, I knew the consequences, and it caused me no significant problem. As noted, I just temporarily moved things out of the way if they were a problem.
