math::gmp install problem


I'm trying to install the Math::GMP module on Sparc Solaris 8 and
receive the following error:

bash-2.03# make

This is when I have installed GMP (successfully) using ./configure CC=/
opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc.

If I try to make GMP after using ./configure CC=/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc
ABI=32 (doing a make clean first) I get:

I would be very grateful for any advice - I have spent all day trying
to get this to work and am tearing my hair out.

Many thanks

I really don't know if it will help (or even if you want to go down this
path) but, if you're having trouble building Math::GMP against a dynamic
build of gmp, you could try building Math::GMP against a *static* build of
gmp:

./configure CC=/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc --disable-shared --enable-static

I guess the other consideration is that you *should* be able to build
against a shared lib if you want to ... but a static lib could be worth a
try if you have no particular reason to persist with a shared lib.

Cheers,
Rob

By a bit of trial and error and reading exhaustively through the docs
the problem was solved by setting the environment variable
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to equal the empty string and then executing the
following:

./configure CC='/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc -xarch=v8plus' ABI=32

I had to get it to compile in 32 bit mode as this was how perl was
compiled.  ABI=32 was not enough - for some reason had to force it
into 32-bit by adding the xarch flag.

Cheers

Jon
