Error building Math::Pari on AIX 7.1

M

Michael Wulff

Hello,

I am trying to compile Math::pari in a Perl 5.14.2 environment on AIX
7.1 TL01 64 Bit using vac compiler v11.1.0.8. After some diffilculties
I finally managed to compile GP/PARI using the options

env LD=/usr/ccs/bin/ld ./Configure --static

and `make gp-sta'

(See also thread http://pari.math.u-bordeaux.fr/archives/pari-users-1202/msg00017.html
in pari users list.)

When buiding Math::pari I first got an error that mpinl.h was not
found. I could fix this copying this header file into the build
directory:

cp /usr/local/include/pari/mpinl.h ../pari-2.5.1/src/headers

But now I run into the following error:

xlc_r -q64 -c -I ../../pari-2.5.1/src -I ../../pari-2.5.1/src/
headers -I ../../pari-2.5.1/src/graph -I . -D_ALL_SOURCE -

Stop.

I get the same error when executing `perl Makefile.PL LIBPARI="-L/lib -
lpari"'

Any ideas?

Here are the outputs from perl Makefile.PL and perl -V:

You will need to have a look at the mentioned lines of this file in
order to determine what's wrong. As far as the message goes, this
should be a variable intialization using something the compiler you
are using does not consider to be a constant (C) expression but
without knowing that this non-expression happens to be, there's litte
which can be said to that.
