Re: Unable to build on IA64 box running RH 4.0

Hi Bill:
Thanks for the response, yes by modifying my Configure file with the gcc
-fPIC I was able to create the C libraries and install them under /usr/lib.
However, my main intentions for creating these libaries was to create
the perl modules for Math-Pari.
However, I have no success in running the with the following
perl Makefile.PL paridir=/usr/lib machine=none

I am trying to do this on the ia64 platform, hence I guess I need to
specify the "none" option.

When I run the above command, I get the following error:

Can someone tell me how I could fix this issue.

You needs to build libpari with -fPIC, you can try

CC='gcc -fPIC' ./Configure

The developement branch automatically adds -fPIC on ia64.
