Hello everyone,

I've been trying to get perl-5.6.0 building since its required for
the boot-floppies package (base tar ball needs base-config which requires
debconf-utils, which requires perl-5.6).  Unfortunately, perl-5.6 does
not work correctly once compiled.

If I use the debian build (with the patch), perl.static and perl.debug
complete building, but a dynamic version crashes immediately on startup
from loading libperl.so.5.6.0 with the following fault:

do_page_fault() pid=21621 command='miniperl' type=6 address=0x00000797

If I only build the static and debug versions, the ./perl installperl
program crashes with the following error:

do_page_fault() pid=1781 command='perl' type=6 address=0x09280003

I've also tried building perl-5.6 w/o any changes (from the .orig.tar.gz)
and the same thing happens.  If it would help, I can install gdb/strace
to find out at which point the faults happens.  If anyone has managed to
get a work perl5.6, please let me know, so I can get it ready for the
install package.
