                        POSTGRESQL BUG REPORT TEMPLATE

Your name		: David Secret	
Your email address	: secret(at)kearneydev(dot)com

System Configuration
  Architecture (example: Intel Pentium)  	: PII-333MHz

  Operating System (example: Linux 2.0.26 ELF) 	: RH 5.2, Linux 2.2.12

  PostgreSQL version (example: PostgreSQL-6.5.2):   PostgreSQL-6.5.2 

  Compiler used (example:  gcc 2.8.0)		: gcc

Please enter a FULL description of your problem:
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/postgresql-6.5.2/src/interfaces'
cd perl5 && perl5 Makefile.PL
/bin/sh: perl5: command not found
make[2]: *** [perl5/Makefile] Error 127

	perl5 doesn't exist on a redhat-5.2... "perl" does, evadentally
this was misdetected or somesuch, not sure why or how.  This is easily
fixed by me, however for most users it might be a good idea to make
it just execute perl.

	I have perl:
This is perl, version 5.004_05 built for i386-linux
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible: 

If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:
Instead of executing "perl5" execute "perl" instead, or detect for
the existance of perl5.  Here is a diff:

*** Makefile.orig       Tue Oct 26 09:13:26 1999
--- Makefile    Tue Oct 26 09:13:43 1999
*** 46,52 ****

  perl5/Makefile: perl5/Makefile.PL
!       cd perl5 && perl5 Makefile.PL

  install-perl5: perl5/Makefile
        $(MAKE) -C perl5 clean
--- 46,52 ----

  perl5/Makefile: perl5/Makefile.PL
!       cd perl5 && perl Makefile.PL

  install-perl5: perl5/Makefile
        $(MAKE) -C perl5 clean

After applying this it compiled fine.
