Is this a full-install system?  If so, there's a problem.  Please describe the
install you have on the system (full, workstation, server, something else).
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-02-26 18:55:21 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-26 21:44:39 EST
perl should (and does) interpret "-e" as "evaluate string", I can't see how
it can complain about it not finding the file.

Anyway, I just rebuilt without problems, so this is not a bug. You didn't use a
bad kernel? (2.4.1-0.1.12 and 13 are very bad, 14 a bit better) This causes lots
of programs (pthreads-linked) to randomly bug out.
