  • sh Configure -Ulocincpth=
    should do what you want. (You may also wish to add
            -Uloclibpth=
    if /usr/local/lib also has junk you don't want.)

    (Incidentally -- posting to perl5-porters@perl.org with build questions is far more likely to get a timely response. I don't usually read use.perl.org. I only saw this because Jarkko spotted it and sent me a note.)

        • lol. I worked and worked to try to figure out where gcc was getting that from. I could not find a single file used by gcc that included /usr/local/include!

          Finally I took this route: I found out what option to pass to gcc at configuration to tell it to not look in /usr/local/include. I compiled a gcc on another system. Slightly older operating system, but it worked when I tarred it up and moved it over. Ugh, I hate doing that. Then I used that working gcc to compile a new gcc on the target system so

          • Option to change this is --with-local-prefix=dirname. It doesn't seem to output with ./configure --help on gcc 4.1.1. Not sure if that means it's gone or what. (I may know soon, though. :) )
