Makes sense. I built perl from source using as many defaults as I could
when configuring. It seems like I can safely ignore this warning. Is that
right? If so, does it make sense to suppress the message altogether? If
not, are there any suggestions either for how to built perl differently or
some other way to deal with this?
Thanks much. Sorry for all the questions. I'm new to HP-UX and building
perl with my own two hands.
