My compile is blowing up when it hits perl. I'm using qemu_arm as a base
config. I dont see a log file but below is a fragment of where things start
to go south. I'm running ubuntu 10.10.  ??

# we need to build a perl for the host just for Errno.pm
(cd /home/jeff/buildroot-2011.08/output/build/perl-5.8.8; ./Configure
-Dcc="/usr/bin/gcc" -de  )

Beginning of configuration questions for perl5.

Checking echo to see how to suppress newlines...

First let's make sure your kit is complete.  Checking...
Looks good...

Would you like to see the instructions? [n]

Locating common programs...
awk is in /usr/bin/awk.
cat is in /bin/cat.
chmod is in /bin/chmod.
comm is in /usr/bin/comm.
cp is in /bin/cp.
echo is in /bin/echo.
expr is in /usr/bin/expr.
grep is in /bin/grep.
ls is in /bin/ls.
mkdir is in /bin/mkdir.
rm is in /bin/rm.
sed is in /bin/sed.
sort is in /usr/bin/sort.
touch is in /usr/bin/touch.
tr is in /usr/bin/tr.
uniq is in /usr/bin/uniq.

Don't worry if any of the following aren't found...
I don't see Mcc out there, offhand.
ar is in /usr/bin/ar.
bison is in /usr/bin/bison.
I don't see byacc out there, either.
cpp is in /usr/bin/cpp.
I don't see csh out there, either.
date is in /bin/date.
egrep is in /bin/egrep.
I don't see gmake out there, either.
gzip is in /bin/gzip.
less is in /usr/bin/less.
ln is in /bin/ln.
make is in /usr/bin/make.
more is in /bin/more.
nm is in /usr/bin/nm.
nroff is in /usr/bin/nroff.
pg is in /usr/bin/pg.
test is in /usr/local/bin/test.
uname is in /bin/uname.
zip is in /usr/bin/zip.
Using the test built into your sh.

Checking compatibility between /bin/echo and builtin echo (if any)...
They are not compatible!  You are probably running ksh on a non-USG system.
I'll have to use /bin/echo instead of the builtin, since Bourne shell
have echo built in and we may have to run some Bourne shell scripts.  That
means I'll have to use '-n' to suppress newlines now.  Life is ridiculous.

The star should be here-->*

Symbolic links are supported.

Checking how to test for symbolic links...
Your builtin 'test -h' may be broken.
Trying external '/usr/local/bin/test -h'.
External '/usr/local/bin/test -h' is broken, too.
