I thought that I was not linking with -lposix, but as well as removing
it from the Makefile LIBS line, I had to remove it from the "ext.libs"
file as well. Now all of the tests bar one passes. lib/findbin gives
vlad:perl5/perl5.004_02/t 76> ./perl lib/findbin.t
stat(0/perl5/perl5.004_02/t/lib/): No such file or directory at ../lib/FindBin.pm line 181
stat(0/perl5/perl5.004_02/t/lib/): No such file or directory at ../lib/FindBin.pm line 182
but that looks like I've got some paths buggered up, so I'm not _too_
concerned about this one now.
Has anyone else started work with dynamic loading? I've just finished
(last night) battling with dynamic loading under Ultrix, so I about to
start looking for NetBSD next...
