Building lang/perl5 under BSD/OS appears to work fine, but the
post-install fails with Error 16. This happens when the installation tries
to run /usr/pkg/bin/perl.

So I tried it manually and it said:
/usr/pkg/bin/perl: can't load library ''

$ ldd /usr/pkg/bin/perl5.6.1 => not found => /shlib/ (0x48053000) => /shlib/ (0x48056000) => /shlib/ (0x48067000) => /shlib/ (0x4813d000)

The .so file exists:

$ file /usr/pkg/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i386-bsdos/CORE/
/usr/pkg/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i386-bsdos/CORE/ ELF 32-bit LSB shared
object, Intel 80386, version 1, not stripped
$ ls -l /usr/pkg/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i386-bsdos/CORE/
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  836551 Oct  3 20:04

I see on Linux and NetBSD that it does not use for running

Can someone look at the build log? (96332 bytes)

Any ideas?

Thank you,
