That's okay.  I appreciate the response.  Besides, I was out of the
office part of the time anyway.

I'm afraid I don't remember about whether I got the "pure Perl version"
warning.  However, I was getting several ptrmismatch warnings during
compilation and had the missing dn_expand problem talked about in that
thread.  I followed your instructions and got a clean build.  Thanks.
I have MultiNet so I modified your "perl makefile" command to:

  perl Makefile.pl "LIBS=-ltcpip$ipc_shr" --xs

I then did

  mmk clean
  mmk install

However, I still get the "Can't locate auto/Net/DNS/typesbyname.al"

I tried the "mms pm_to_blib" (even with /force and /from_source) and
"mms install" but I still get the error.  I can't find any reference
in the descrip.mms files to any ".al" files.
