    Hi all,

    I've upgraded to Perl 5.8 from 5.6 and I'm getting output I don't understand when I try to install the DBI module.

    I'm on Solaris 9 (Sparc) and I had Perl 5.0 and 5.6 installed as packages and I removed them with pkgrm. I then installed Perl 5.8 from ActiveState using ActivePerl-5.8.6.811-sun4-solaris.tar.gz.

    Now I'm trying to install the DBI module and when I execute 'perl Makefile.PL' the output returned says:

            I see you're using perl 5.008006 on sun4-solaris, okay.

    There's nothing in my environment that says perl 5.0. My question is two fold: Where is this Makefile.PL getting the Perl version from and how do I fix this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Paul
