       README.openbsd - Perl version 5 on OpenBSD systems

       This document describes various features of OpenBSD that will affect
       how Perl version 5 (hereafter just Perl) is compiled and/or runs.

       OpenBSD core dumps from getprotobyname_r and getservbyname_r with

       When Perl is configured to use ithreads, it will use re-entrant library
       calls in preference to non-re-entrant versions.	There is an incompata
       bility in OpenBSDs "getprotobyname_r" and "getservbyname_r" function
       in versions 3.7 and later that will cause a SEGV when called without
       doing a "bzero" on their return structs prior to calling these func
       tions.  Current Perls should handle this problem correctly.  Older
       threaded Perls (5.8.6 or earlier) will run into this problem.  If you
       want to run a threaded Perl on OpenBSD 3.7 or higher, you will need to
       upgrade to at least Perl 5.8.7.
