[ID 20001107.006] Problems installing perl5.6.0, perl5.00405 on AIX

Hiya.

I'm attempting to install both Perl 5.6 and/or Perl 5.4.5 on an AIX box
running AIX 4.1.2. They both compile with no problems: they fail a few
tests, but those still result in 99% functionality. What blows up is
the install.

Perl 5.4.5 reports an out of memory error upon installation, like so:

root@appf ***** /netadmin/temp/perl5.004_05                                
    28 % ./perl installperl -n
  cp perl /usr/local/bin/perl5.00405
  chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/perl5.00405
Out of memory!

('top' shows 1400MB free virtual memory, 124MB free real memory, etc.)

I have no idea what errors Perl 5.6.0 reports because about 1/5th of the
way through the install program my screen output gets corrupted in some
fashion.
Instead of normal output I start seeing the higher-level ASCII characters.
This behavior continues even when the 5.6.0 install program stops running:
my shell prompt from then on is in funky characters, as is anything I type.
I tried several different terminal emulators, including a fairly faithful
xterm emulator: the behavior continues.

The output of myconfig from 5.4.5 is included below. Output of myconfig
5.6.0 can be provided upon request.

Any help will be most sincerely appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
           ---Elliot Smorodinsky

[ID 19991019.004] problems compiling perl5.005_03 on AIX 4.3.2.0
I am trying to get a working version of perl5.005_03 on a AIX 4.3.2.0. Configuring was not a problem. But when using make, I keep having problems. The first problem occured when using miniperl on pod/pod2text.PL; it resulted in a core dump. Calling it from the prompt solved this problem. The second problem was that ext/Opcode/Makefile.PL would not generate a Makefile. Temporary solved it by using Makefile.old. Here also a core dump. And again problems this time when calling: ../miniperl -Ilib -e 'use AutoSplit; autosplit_lib_modules(@ARGV)' lib/*.pm lib/*/*.pm make: ...

[ID 20000518.009] Bug/Inconsistency in POP3.pm (libnet) with perl5.6.0
Hi, I have spent a couple of hours tearing my hair out over this, and found an easy work-around... this happened since grabbing perl5.6 and libnet1.0703. The problem: perl code using Net::POP3.pm was failing to connect to the localhost. Examining the logs showed it never tried - running with debug showed the constructor always returned undef. Grabbing the smtp port works fine, as does sunrpc and a couple of other ports. It turns out that the POP3 module attempts to get the port for "pop3" service, where this basically standard Linux 2.2.13 (Redhat 6.1 with a kernel u...
