	'lo. I'll answer, since I've just recently solved my own perl
compilation problem. The lone mad 0 was, in my case, the result of
improperly created /dev/random. Check if your /dev/random
looks like this:
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root  1, 8 Oct 6 13:06 /dev/random
	In my case it was malformed. I had two file /dev/random and
/dev/random. None of them was a proper /dev/random node. I have deleted
both and recreated it with mknode c /dev/random 1 8. It not only solved
problem with this 0, but also solved problem when perl compilation stopped
somwhere in x2p.
