need to cross compile. There is a binary version of perl available from
<http://www.cp15.org/perl/> which you may wish to use instead of trying to compile it
You need an installed and working gccsdk cross compiler <http://gccsdk.riscos.info/> and
Firstly, copy the source and build a native copy of perl for your host system. Then, in
the source to be cross compiled:
o Select the riscos hint file. The default answers for the rest of the questions are

for details), to have it select the correct hint file, you'll need to provide the
argument -Dhintfile=riscos on the Configure command-line.
$ make miniperl
o This should build miniperl and then fail when it tries to run it.
o Copy the miniperl executable from the native build done earlier to replace the cross
o This will use miniperl to complete the rest of the build.
