Multiply defined?

P: 4
Hello:
I tried to install Tk800.015 on SunOS 4.1.4 with perl 5.6.2. At "make test" time, I got the error message as below:
collect2: ld returned 2 exit status
ld: /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.2/sun4-sunos/auto/Tk/Event/Event.a(Event.o): _LangExit: multiply defined
ld: /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.2/sun4-sunos/auto/Tk/Event/Event.a(Event.o): _Tcl_Free: multiply defined

make: *** [perl] Error 1
*** Error code 2
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `perl'

What does "multiply defined" mean? How can I fix it?

Thanks,

The problem isn't the "Multiply defined" that you pointed out, in fact its this:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `perl'
  2.  
You have to look for the error message(s) and this is the only message around the ***ERROR message. Just looking at this I have to ask, do you have Perl installed? If so, you may want to ensure that its location is in your $PATH variable.
