Irix 6.2 build problem - so_locations

Subject: Perl 5.004_03 - Irix 6.2 build problem - probably fixed

I have just built and install perl 5.004_03 on and SGI Power Challenge
under Irix 6.2 with the SGI Mongoose 7.1 compiler.

Problem

Did the standard "sh Configure -des; make".  Had a problem building
shared libraries, with compaints about file ./so_locations.

Solution:

  [ patch ]

Caveat:

You should get an SGI guru to check this.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I think the following mini-patch (which
I send while everyone was at the conference) is essential for
*installing* on Win32 (with MSC 4.2 on NT4.0). I'm just very suprised
that noboday else seems to encounter this problem. Perhaps everyone is
using the binary distribution?

Maybe Gurusamy could comment if I'm right?
