If I'm building autoconf (which has Perl dependencies) and get the following error
truncate not implemented at ../lib/Autom4te/XFile.pm line 280
does it indicate a problem with the existing installation of Perl, a problem with the build (configure issues, etc) or something else?
Note: The ../lib/Autom4te/XFile.pm is in the autoconf build dir.
Additionally, here's the relevant code in XFile.pm
277 sub truncate
279 my ($fh, $len) = @_;
280 if (!truncate ($fh, $len))
282 my $file = $fh->name;
283 fatal "cannot truncate $file at $len: $!";
