[Orca-users] Help: Command failed for target "MD5.o"

I had a similar problem.  It has to do with how perl was compiled (it was
compiled with the -B option to use the linker in /usr/ccs/bin).  I fixed
this problem by commenting out the following line in the
.../packages/rrdtool-1.0.40/configure file:

#        PROBLEMCC=`$PERL -e 'use Config; exit 0 if -x $Config{cc}; map {if
(-x "$_/$Config{cc}"){exit 0}} split /:/, $ENV{PATH};print $Config{cc}'`

This line checks to make sure that the compiler used to compile perl is
available to compile rrd.  I successfully ignored it since I knew my perl
was compiled with gcc.  I'm not using the ActiveState perl, but I bet it
will work for you to.

After commenting out this line, just run the base orca configure again and
press on.

Hope that gets you going.

 but they have Perl 5.8.5.

Thank you Blair but now I have one more problem.I
installed active state perl and set the path as


(for gcc)    (for new perl5.8)  (for make)

However I am getting this error

checking for shared library extension... so
checking for the C compiler perl wants to use to build
its modules... ./configure: test: unknown operator
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target
Current working directory /test/orca-0.27/packages
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all'

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
