Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

Seams like perl5.8 & 5.12.3 are not compiling (configure for 5.12) correctly on lion, I tried with clang & gcc and I get about the same result a compilation error with 5.8 and some obscure configuration error with 5.12.3.

Lion is not released yet; we can't really help with unreleased versions of Mac OS X.

The issue with this (as far as I have debugged this.) is the way perl Configure is looking for libc.dylib.

It greps for fprintf and for some reason it's not in /usr/lib/libc.dylib. (It uses /usr/bin/nm to find the object methods)

Also if I just download stock perl tar.gz and try to configure it manually the same error occurs. So therefore I would suggest this is an issue with either perl/XCode/[Something new in Lion's setup of libc] and not directly MacPorts.

Reopen if this is still a problem when Lion is actually released. BTW, I'd check if your NDA allows you to post this kind of info publicly.

Based on comment:2, r76831 should fix this.
