(The original message didn't come through the list, I assume because
of it's size.  This is the message again with the build output removed

Correct, I havn't put NetBSD on any of the sparc64 systems yet (that's next,
but they are overkill for a mail server.) Yes, the problem does seem
similar.  I looked through the lists and there appear to be other problems
that actually report a symbol (insted of "") and it might be a perl problem.

I've tried building the Perl modules by hand in the work tree and still get
the same error with the "make test".

The information is below, but here is a strangeness I ran in to during
the build.  It complained that Perl and the config package did not agree
on the platform, but here is what the error reported:

Your perl and your seem to have different ideas about the architecturethey are running on.
Perl thinks: [sparc-netbsd]
Config says: [sparc-netbsd]

Those look the same to me, so I don't know what was causing the error.

I build Mail-Sendmail-0.78 from CPAN and attempted to call it from a script
on the same system, make test worked and sent mail w/o issues.  So it does
appear that the Perl package can use modules. I don't have any other code I
can use to test and see if Perl can load .so files though, and that could
be a different matter.

Here are the stats on my system:
mail1# uname -a
NetBSD 1.5.2 NetBSD 1.5.2 (netbsd_sparc5_1.5.2) #0: Thu Mar 21 23:25:45 PST 2002     root@:/usr/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/netbsd_sparc5_1.5.2 sparc

It is a Sun Sparc 5/110 w/265mb RAM
