[rrd-users] Can't build/install perl modules rrdtool 1.2.12

I am trying to build rrdtool 1.2.12 with perl modules built and installed.
I've tried a variety of things and nothing seems to work.  Nor can I find
the documentation on how to do this?  I'm sure I'm just getting senile in my
old age, but I need help!

I'm building this exactly according to instructions in rrdbuild man page.
On Solaris8 btw.

I configured with this:

./configure --enable-perl-site-install --prefix=$INSTALL_DIR
--disable-python --disable-tcl

Then "make"-ed and installed.  It went just find.

A find in /usr/local only gives me my old installation:


So I went back to BUILD_DIR/rrdtool-1.2.12 and did this:

s00c160# make site-perl-inst
make  all-recursive
Making all in src
Making all in bindings
cd perl-piped && make
Making all in doc
Making all in examples
make: Fatal error: Don't know how to make target

No dice.  So I went down to
/tmp/rrdbuild/rrdtool-1.2.12/bindings/perl-shared and did the following:

s00c160# perl Makefile.PL
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Writing Makefile for RRDs
s00c160# make test

What am I doing wrong here???
