Otherwise, perl should build fine on Linux using the mainstream compilers GCC and clang, while following the usual instructions.
There are some special instructions for building Perl with Sun Studio on Linux. Following the normal "Configure", you have to run make as follows:
"LDLOADLIBS" is an environment variable used by the linker to link "/ext" modules to glibc. Currently, that environment variable is not getting populated by a combination of "Config" entries and "ExtUtil::MakeMaker". While there may be a bug somewhere in Perl's configuration or "ExtUtil::MakeMaker" causing the problem, the most likely cause is an incomplete understanding of Sun Studio by this author. Further investigation is needed to get this working better.
