Hm, the compile options don't indicate anything untoward to my eye (although
the sysadmin seems to have gone control-frantic). This is very curious. I
ran through a vanilla perl-5.8.0 on FreeBSD (my previous test was on a v. old
debian woody linux), and again, I'm not getting anything out-of-the-ordinary.

Can you send me the output of env? We're fishing in the dark a bit here.

I assume hte program is still working. Is it giving any bad output (as
opposed to warnings)?
