Wow...thanks for the fast reply(ies - 3 responded you were first!)...

Yes, indeed my time was off... I had been running ntpd with the -g option,
syncing off my main netbsd box which is connected to a decent triad and
has the correct time... for some reason it was about 6 months out of sync.
I adjusted time and yep... perl 5 compiles now...

thanks again,
