Configure fails (./myread no such file or directory)

    Hi,
    Im having trouble compiling the latest version of perl. Following the
    instructions I run 'sh Configure -de', it runs for 5-10 minutes and
    then fails shortly after detecting vfork():

    >vfork() found.

    >Configure: line 17118: ./myread: No such file or directory


    Going by the path it is using, I assume that ./myread should be
    included with the perl source, however its not in the tarballs.
    Googling for it hasnt produced any useful hits so far.

    Has anyone else come across this problem?

    I can't recall ever seeing a question about this.
    There is no file called 'myread' in the perl source - though I can find
    occurrences of './myread' in 'Configure', 'hints/aix4.sh' and
    'hints/aix.sh'.

    Is there any helpful advice in the README.your_os file ? What os are you
    running ?

    Cheers,
    Rob

    I'm running RedHat Linux 7.2 on this machine, (yes, we should update
    but we have some legacy software issues to sort out first). Ive also
    tried compiling on one of our 'newer' machines (RedHat 9.0) with the
    same result.

    There doesnt seem to be a README.linux

    Thanks for the response

    Not sure that I can help much. I have Mandrake-9.1 which, I believe, should
    exhibit similar issues - but both 5.8.6 and 5.8.7 build fine for me. Below
    you'll find the output I get from running 'sh Configure -des'. Maybe it can
    help pinpoint the problem. (If there's something else you'd like, just let
    us know.)

    Cheers,

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

    Checking compatibility between /bin/echo and builtin echo (if any)...
    Symbolic links are supported.

    Your builtin 'test -h' may be broken.
    Trying external '/usr/bin/test -h'.
    You can test for symbolic links with '/usr/bin/test -h'.
    Good, your tr supports [:lower:] and [:upper:] to convert case.

    Now you must run 'make'.

    If you compile perl5 on a different machine or from a different object
    directory, copy the Policy.sh file from this object directory to the
    new one before you run Configure -- this will help you with most of
    the policy defaults.

    Thanks,
    Ive ended up modifying Configure.sh so that it doesnt call ./myread
    after the vfork detection bit. Ive just cut out the decision code so
    that it behaves as if I answered no to the question 'Do you still want
    to use vfork()?'. That has at least got me past the Configuration (its
    still compiling now).

    Any idea where I'd log this as a bug? perl.com doesnt seem to mention
    bug reporting
