Installing TK into Oracle's perl installation

    The Oracle database install contains its own perl installation. In 9i
    this is in $ORACLE_HOME/Apache/perl, and in 10g it is in
    $ORACLE_HOME/perl. For a number of reasons (which I won't get into
    here) I need to use this perl installation. My PATH and PERL5LIB is set
    to use this perl.

    Oracle has provided a number of changes to be made to Config.pm in
    order to install additional modules. I have successfully installed TK
    in the 9i installation (5.00503). However, I am getting errors with the
    10g installation (5.8.3). I believe @INC includes paths that do not
    exist on my server.

    I am getting the following error when I begin perl Makefile.PL for TK:

    perl Makefile.PL
    Cannot find
    '/ade/stvobadm_perl_583_build/perl/bin/Solaris/Opt/lib/5.8.3/sun4-solaris-thread-multi/CORE/perl.h'
    have you installed perl?
    Compilation failed in require at Makefile.PL line 17.
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Makefile.PL line 19.

    I don't have an /ade directory. I am assuming this existed in Oracle's
    environment when they compiled perl.

    Is there a way to make this work?

    Here is the output of perl -V:

    Go into them, it may help. Why can't you use a "normal" perl?

    Yes, as shown in your perl -V output. You can always edit @INC.

    ....and where the sources and headers are being sought. I suppose, since
    Perl -V gives you the info,l you could re-create the original build
    environment, put the sources where they're expected. Have you looked to
    see if you can edit Makefile.PL to change the expections (perldoc
    ExtUtils::MakeMaker)?

    Sorry not much help, just saw the post was going unanswered.
