[PATCH] [5.12] Allow build on aix 4.2 (sigaction and IPv6)

Based on a patch by AUGUSTE-ETIENNE José <jose.auguste-etienne@cgss-guyane.fr>

The attached patches are necessary to work around aix 4.2 lack of support for IPv6,
and limited support for POSIX sigaction()

The hints/aix_4.sh patch solves the following build failure:

"Socket.xs", line 468.16: 1506-007 (S) "struct in6_addr" is undefined.

The ext/POSIX/t/sigaction.t patch solves the failing test reported a looong time ago:

http://www.xray.mpe.mpg.de/mailing-lists/perl5-porters/2006-01/msg01124.html

After testing a simple C program using POSIX sigaction() with SA_SIGINFO,
I found that it worked on aix 4.3 but failed on aix 4.2.

I think it's safe to skip the SA_SIGINFO test on the aix 4.2 platform.

perl 5.12.0 builds fine on the following platforms / C compiler :

aix 4.2.1 / vac 5.0.2.7 (with attached patches)
aix 4.3.2 / gcc 2.95.3
aix 4.3.3 / vac 4.4.0.3
aix 4.3.3 / vac 5.0.28
aix 5.2 / GNUpro gcc 2.9.aix51.020209

Karl Williamson [Wed, 14 Apr 2010 03:25:36 +0000 (21:25 -0600)]
PATCH: [perl #72998] regex looping

If a character folds to multiple ones in case-insensitive matching,
it should not match just one of those, or the regular expression can
loop.  For example, \N{LATIN SMALL LIGATURE FF} folds to 'ff', and so
    "\N{LATIN SMALL LIGATURE FF}" =~ /f+/i
should match.  Prior to this patch, this function returned that there is
a match, but left the matching string  pointer at the beginning of the
"\N{LATIN SMALL LIGATURE FF}" because it doesn't make sense to match
just half a character, and at this level it doesn't know about the '+'.
This leaves things in an inconsistent state, with the reporting of a
match, but the input pointer unchanged, the result of which is a loop.

I don't know how to fix this so that it correctly matches, and there are
semantic issues with doing so.  For example, if
    "\N{LATIN SMALL LIGATURE FF}" =~ /ff/i
matches, then one would think that so should
    "\N{LATIN SMALL LIGATURE FF}" =~ /(f)(f)/i
But $1 and $2 don't really make sense here, since they both refer to the
half of the same character.

So this patch just returns failure if only a partial character is
matched.  That leaves things consistent, and solves the problem of
looping, so that Perl doesn't hang on such a construct, but leaves the
ultimate solution for another day.
