Hi, I'm having an issue installing Perl from ports (both 5.6 and 5.8 - same issue). It seems like something is passing unknown flags to the "Configure" script used to configure the perl build:
===> Configuring for perl-5.6.1_15 Configure: unknown option --localstatedir=/usr/local/share/gnome Configure: unknown option --datadir=/usr/local/share/gnome Configure: unknown option --with-html-dir=/usr/local/share/doc Configure: unknown option --disable-gtk-doc Configure: unknown option --with-gconf-source=xml::/usr/local/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults Usage: Configure [-dehrsEKOSV] [-f config.sh] [-D symbol] [-D symbol=value] ** -- snip Configure usage -- ** ===> Script "Configure" failed unexpectedly. This is on FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-p4, freshly cvsup'd I encountered this while trying to figure out why `portsdb -Uu` was failing to update the index, which is another issue, I think. Upon trying to update the index, it would coredump towards the very end. I then ran `pkgdb -fu`, and then got a generic "failed to generate INDEX!" error, and tty1 shows a bunch of "out of swap" messages. Any ideas on either/both of these issues (Perl's build failure and my inability to generate an updated INDEX?)
