Version: 1.3.0-patched version
OS: SGI's IRIX 6.5
Submission from: (NULL) (


During the 'make check' step of the installation procedure, I had the following
error messages

> make test > rapportMakeTest
/bin/sh: /usr/local/bin//perl: arg list too long

I've seen that already in my former life in the software industry.
It seems the SGI sh shell is rather more limitated by the length
of arg lists than it's linux conterpart (I do not know about the other OSs).

>gmake[3]: *** [modreg-Ex.Rout] Bus error (core dumped)
gmake[3]: *** Deleting file `modreg-Ex.Rout'
gmake[2]: *** [test-Examples] Error 2
gmake[1]: *** [test-Examples] Error 2
gmake: *** [test-all-basics] Error 1
I cannot (or rather I do not dare) make any hypothesis about this one...
