from the log (the bzip2 of a gzip. hmm.)

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/buildd/build/perl-5.6-5.6.0 ./miniperl -w -Ilib -MExporter
 -e '<?>' || make minitest
syntax error at -e line 1, near "use Exporter;
Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.

What is medusa? RiscPC with StrongARM? If so, K?
I've seen these sorts of weird errors with a K StrongARM.
[and eval dumping about 2 Gb of crud (ie 
strace reporting a single write(2, garbage, lots and lots))
and a couple of other wierdos usually related to require (which is the
opcode use is implemented in) or fork]

Options for Ks could include
replacing with not-a-K on the build system
subtly changing the compiler options on the build to alter the size of
object files [hit and miss, not suitable for autobuilds]
building somewhere else. (But that will still leave a binary that would
fail on Ks)

On the other hand, I may be completely wrong
