I'm trying to set up a web interface to acedb. I've managed to get
aceserver running (tested with the C aceclient), but am having great
difficulty recompiling perl with the aceclient extensions.
I'm following the instructions at
http://probe.nalusda.gov:8000/ace97/perlace/perlacecl.html and I'm using
acedb 4_5. I've tried various distributions of perl from 5.001m to
5.005_02 (including 5.004_01), all with the same result.
Perl compiles fine accepting all defaults, except for the install
directory (so as not to mess up the version we've already got).
I edit instpace.pl, to point at the new version of perl, then run it.
When I then try to run Makefile.PL I get a MakeMaker error: 'EXTRALIBS'
is not a known MakeMaker parameter name.
make then fails, with missing includes.
Machine is an Alpha, running DU4
Any help appreciated.
