Hi All,

While trying to compile Perl as in the 3.2 book I ran into a problem. It 
failed with a message which started with this. Sorry don't remember the 
whole message.

   Executable pod/pod2man

I think the fix for it is in the "hints/" file and can be 
corrected by changing the configure like this.

In book now.

   ./configure --prefix=/usr  " and so on"


   CC=gcc ./configure --prefix=/usr

By changing this I was able to compile and install Perl.
