I am "on my own" - this came from "free" CD-ROM without support.

my board NFS mounts /fadsroot from the Linux RedHat 9 Shrike Intel PC NFS
server (i686) as a root directory.
When I telnet (from my Windows XP laptop ... yet another machine ...) into
NFS server I use /fadsroot.
On the Power PC board it is /. 

root@192:/perl/perl-5.8.5# /usr/bin/perl -v

This is perl, v5.8.2 built for powerpc-linux-thread-multi

Actually 5.8.5 is not installed there - it is me, who brought 5.8.5 source
(for trying "native" Power PC build - and I just  did ... - see below ...).

So I have ONLY two alternatives:

1) Somehow "fix" installed power pc perl 5.8.2 - by adding "missing" or
"misplaced" 5.8.2 perl module files
 (such as lib.pm, Config.pm, etc. ) 

or

2) build 5.8.5 natively - who is responsible for Power PC perl  5.8.5 port ?

here is the first "try":

I don't know what this "fadsroot" stuff is.  Are you *sure* that this is
what gets called when you do a plain 'perl -v'?  One way to check is by
explicitly calling
	/fadsroot/usr/bin/perl -v

I mention this because you previously had shown evidence of a perl-5.8.5
installed under /fadsroot.

In any case, my diagnosis and advice is the same:

That's generally very hard to do.  It's usually better to do a fresh
install -- unless you can simply re-install the distribution package that
contained the original perl-5.8.2.  As I've said before, I still think
that's your best first alternative.  Go back to where you got the
perl-5.8.2 distribution and try re-installing it.

Ok, first of all, I don't know what you think those environment variable
settings are going to do.  Perl's Configure is not an autoconf-generated
configure script.  But ignoring them for the moment . . .

You might as well stop here.  Something is terribly misconfigured on your
system.  Every Unix version of 'rm' that I know of honors the '-f' flag.
Strangely, that error message looks a lot like the one you get from
calling inetd, though why inetd would get called instead of 'rm' is a
complete mystery to me.

Configure should work just fine for a native build on most Unix systems,
provided you have all the development tools (compiler, etc.)  properly
installed.  Your system appears to be in a very mixed-up state.  Until you
straighten it out, there's nothing anyone here can do.
