I tried building perl on a completely vanilla full install of Cygwin
on WinME with no other application running. I'm still getting the
same error as before [sync_with_child] as soon as it starts the
testing phase. Gerrit, I think I'm at my wits end. Nothing at all
(blank) is being displayed in DrMingw when it crashes. Oh, BTW,
perl-5.8 recognizes db3.1 as a valid db to build the db module
against (FYI). I spoke with Chuck the other day and he thinks it is
*wrong* for perl to *require* rebasing. I completely agree, as perl
is required for core functionality. Perhaps we should get Jakko or
Larry in on this discussion?
