tkperl segmentation fault

 tkperl segmentation fault

I just can't seem to get tkperl5a4 up and running.

I first tried to follow the INSTALL instructions,
but make gave an error while compiling Tk.a, something

make: can't make target config

So I introduced an extra line with the label "config:"
in the Makefile, so that that section of it now reads:


        # Target for Static Loading:
        static: $(INSTALLSTATIC) $(INSTALLPM)

I did this so that Tk would be loaded statically. When I
did this, "make" and "make depend" ran perfectly in the
perl directory.

However, the example scripts in  ext/Tk/t/* all gave
segmentation faults. On using the Perl de{*filter*}, I found
the offending line:

Tk::tkinit(       ($name = $0) =~ s:^[^/]*/:: unless $name;
  DB<1> s
Tk::tkinit(       die 'no name set and $0 not appropriate' unless $name;
  DB<1> s
Tk::tkinit(       $top = init($name, $display, $sync);

Segmentation fault

I will be going over this much more carefully this weekend,
but could the fact that $sync is not defined (as shown by the
X command to the Perl De{*filter*}) have anything to do with the

Any help will be really appreciated.
