       README.linux - Perl version 5 on Linux systems

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

       Experimental Support for Sun Studio Compilers for Linux OS

       Sun Microsystems has released a port of their Sun Studio compiliers for
       Linux.  As of November 2005, only an alpha version has been released.
       Until a release of these compilers is made, support for compiling Perl
       with these compiler experimental.

       Also, some special instructions for building Perl with Sun Studio on
       Linux.  Following the normal "Configure", you have to run make as fol

	   LDLOADLIBS=-lc make

       "LDLOADLIBS" is an environment variable used by the linker to link mod
       ules "/ext" modules to glibc.  Currently, that environment variable is
       not getting populated by a combination of "Config" entries and "ExtU
       til::MakeMaker".  While there may be a bug somewhere in Perls configu
       ration or "ExtUtil::MakeMaker" causing the problem, the most likely
       cause is an incomplete understanding of Sun Studio by this author.
       Further investigation is needed to get this working better.
