I just had a look at these log files (thanks for the link!) and
something definitely is fishy there. While (with the excetion of
mipsel, where there is a complaining about some downloads failing
which I probably can't do much about) for most of what looks like
32-bit systems the ::Pure and ::Inline modules fail their most
CPAN testing gives it clean bill of health, but the tests seem
to have been done with 64-bit systems only.
At the moment I'm at a loss to understand what's going on with the
32-bit systems - they obviously have a 'q' format for pack/unpack
(otherwise the ::Pure and ::Inline modules shouldn't be build and
then also not tested). Unfortunately, it's nearly a decade since
I had any 32-bit system, so this is a bit like flying blind;-)
Is there any chance of someone temporarily giving me an account
on a type of machine where the tests fail or at least of getting
at what the results of 'perl Makefile.PL' look like (that should
contain the automatically created Perl code which might give me
Please accept my appologies for these inconveniences!
