I just realized, that with Perl 5.14, it is no longer possible to load the GD
$ perl -e 'use GD;'
Not a CODE reference at
END failed--call queue aborted at
A short search revealed a rather fundamental problem in ExtUtils-MakeMaker:
As a quick fix per
to graphics/p5-GD/Makefile, and the error was gone.
The problem seems to affect different architectures. I can confirm Solaris/i86
with 32bit ABI is affected, Solaris/sparc with 32bit ABI and NetBSD-5.1/i386
are not. The patch should be enclosed in an appropriate .if-clause, probably
after the situation on other platforms has been evaluated.
And someone should probably take a close look on the development of
ExtUtils-MakeMaker and pull up any fixes there quickly.
