PERL 64bit Question

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Ok, I've recompiled and now this is what I see, below (no
use_long_double).  I believe this is now 64bit, can someone state
otherwise?  However, I'm concerned that I cannot configure using the
option "uselongdouble" as I get

modfl() found.

modfl() prototype NOT found.
Checking to see whether your modfl() is okay for large values...
I don't understand your modfl() at all.

*** You requested the use of long doubles but you do not seem to have
*** the following mathematical functions needed for long double
***     modfl
*** Please rerun Configure without -Duselongdouble and/or
*** Cannot continue, aborting.

anyone get 5.8.2 to compile on AIX 5.1 with long double?

(no use_long_double)
